Sébastien Vaillant learnt winemaking as the cellar manager for Jean Tatin at Domaine des Ballandors in Quincy. He then returned to his 22 hectare family domaine in Valençay, in the western part of the Loire’s Central Vineyards. Valençay achieved official AC status from the 2002 vintage and is the only area to hold this for both its wine and its distinctive pyramid-shaped goat’s cheese, which is also the ideal accompaniment for the wine

Tasting Notes

Upon arrival at the winery, the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were gently crushed with one third of the must left on skins to macerate for ten hours before pressing. The varieties were co-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 16-17°C, for approximately two months. After fermentation, the wine was racked, blended and aged on fine lees for one month before bottling.
The Chardonnay give this wine an expressive nose with intense aromas of lychees, peach and apricot. The palate offers flavours of white peach and ripe pear with a natural acidity and vibrant minerality.
