Description

Details

If wine is in the blood, it seems you just can’t fight it. Lionel Gosseaume resisted until the age of 37, before giving in to the inevitable and taking on this small estate on the Touraine/Sologne border, between the Loire and its tributary the Cher.

That was in 2007, and the name Lionel gave to this 15-hectare collection of eight parcels of vines across four communes was Domaine de Pierre, after his late vigneron father. Indeed, the family vineyards where Lionel grew up lie nearby.

Domaine de Pierre’s vineyards date back to the late 19th century, and in Lionel’s hands the wines they produce have risen above the Touraine norm, including this Sauvignon Blanc which puts many Sancerres to shame for its concentration and power.

Vineyard:

Produced by Lionel Gosseaume from his family run estate in the heart of the Touraine district. This delicious Sauvignon has impressive fruit concentration and power from low yielding vines.

Winemaking:

From the classic department of Touraine in the Loire Region. This small estate has a series of rolling hills made up of clay, stone and chalk soils. The grapes show a delightful mineral character and in

quality compares very favourably with the neighbouring Sancerre district. Fermented in stainless steel tanks. No oak ageing.
