Le Petit Bouchon Sans Sulfites Blanc 2020

Description

A natural wine from dynamic winemaker Florian Bouchon, produced from a blend of Sauvignon and Sémillon.

From the Château Ferreyres vineyards, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes are manually sorted before undergoing a two stage fermentation at different temperatures, followed by maturation on the lees at a low temperature for a further 8 weeks. Particular attention is paid to protecting to wine against oxygenation, eliminating the need for the addition of sulphur.

This is unfiltered so may appear slightly cloudy and with some sediment — this is intentional and desirable as no flavour has been stripped out prior to bottling. Delicate aromas of ripe pear, apricot and passionfruit invite you in, with hints of fresh pastry and honey surfacing later. This is gorgeously ripe and rich in flavour, pear, yellow melon and stone fruit on a minerally, textured palate, with a refreshing twist of citrus zest keeping everything in check, and a long finish revealing more savoury and spice notes.

Producer: Le Petit Bouchon

Le Petit Bouchon (the small cork) is a range of natural wines from Florian Bouchon, a young and dynamic winemaker tending the 42 hectare Château Ferreyres on the high plateau of the village of Le Puch in Entre-deux-Mers. The soil is clay-limestone with an unusually high proportion of flint, a feature that allows the heat of the sun to be returned at night to the vines, accelerating the ripening process of the grapes during summer.

Florian has produced three wines so far, a red, a white and a rosé, the red classified Bordeaux AOC, the white and rosé classified Vin de France as although the wines follow all the rules of Bordeaux they are quite different in style to traditional examples.

"I work meticulously to create wines of unique taste, of silky tannin. Above all, tasting them means to live a pleasant moment. Proudly attached to the value and history of my terroir, I have chosen methods that preserve the beauty and balance of the vineyard". Salut, Florian!
