Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Laurent Lebled spent 30+ years as a wood merchant, and after the 2008 recession, his career had come to a standstill. In the nick of time, two childhood friends came to the rescue and nurtured him into a winemaking career. Though he had never worked with wine in his life, he found himself working with one of the two friends through the 2009 vintage. “A la Vôtre,” meaning “Cheers,” was born in 2010, a year in which the two friends generously shared their winemaking knowledge with Laurent. Since then, he has been making natural, carbonically macerated whites and reds in the Touraine region of the Loire Valley.
This is an organically farmed Sauvignon Blanc coming from 50-70 year old vines in Touraine. Though the wine is made within Touraine lines, it is intentionally declassified as a Vin de France. No sulfites are added and the grapes undergo 10 days of carbonic maceration for additional freshness.
