Vineyard

The vineyards of the Domaine Renaudie lie in the South of the Touraine Appellation on the tuffeau soils of the terroir de Chenonceaux in the Coteaux du Cher. They have 25 hectares of vines that average 40 years old. The sandy clay soils are covered with stones that capture heat from the sunshine and release it at night to keep temperatures moderated in the vineyard. Combined with the continental, temperate climate, this means that grapes can ripen slowly and retain their natural aromatic character.

Winemaking

Hand picked into small baskets, gentle handling and low fermentation (18 degrees centigrade) temperatures retain the delightful scent of these wines. Racking and gentle filtration only.

Food Match

Goats cheese, aspargus, poached white fish with young green vegetables.
