Following a pneumatic pressing, a short pre-fermentation maceration takes place. The vinification is then carried out in stainless steel vats at a medium temperature. Ageing on the lees, along with « bâtonnage » (stirring up of the lees), brings the smoothness and minerality of the Chardonnay to the fore.
This Sauvignon Blanc is designated a Côtes de Gascogne Protected Geographical Indication wine. Gascony is characterized by its temperate oceanic climate and is this aromatic grape variety’s preferred region as it enables it to reach optimal maturity. Its terroir endows the ripe grapes with lovely acidity reflected in the nice taut, fresh character of the wines.
Roche Mazet Sauvignon has a bright pale yellow robe with green tints. On the nose, delicate aromas abound of white flowers, boxwood and exotic fruits. On the palate, it is well-balanced, elegant and very lively and fresh.
