Les Grenettes, Domaine Béseajour (75cl)
Made from a single-vineyard of 25-year old vines, this Touraine Sauvignon Blanc shows great balance and concetration. Whilst still showing the grape’s herbaceous character, this has a greater depth of flavour, more roundness and minerality than most from the region.
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Loire Valley, France
Tasting notes/pairing options: This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc delivers textbook grapefruit, lime leaf and herb flavors on a bright, light-bodied palate. It’s terrifically pure and fresh, with a minerally edge that lingers on the mouthwatering finish.
Viticulture follows lutte raisonné, with widespeard use of cover crops between vine rows.
The vineyard/the winemaking:
The vineyard consists of separate parcels on slopes with different soils: sandy and clay/limestone. The cultivated area measures 12 hectares. Altitude is around 100 metres above sea level and climate is warm and temperate with significant rainfall throughout the year. After hand-picking, grapes undergo direct pressing followed by low temperature fermentation. The wine is then aged on its fine lees, which are stirred from time to time.
We are a close family business and are currently in our second generation. We are based on our natural lavender farm, Yorkshire Lavender in the North Yorkshire countryside.
So why wine?
With a member of our staff, Timi, a trained sommelier; it seemed crazy to let that enthusiasm and experience go to waste.
Wine starts in the ground! Just like lavender the correct soil, conditions and care are vital to grow excellent grapes to make exceptional wine.
Our commitment to our natural lavender farm along with Timi’s enthusiastic expertise has led to a developing interest in natural, organic, bio-dynamic wines.
