The vines of Gatebourse, 50 years’ old, located at the lieu-dit les Brosses in Quincy, are rooted in tawny sandy gravels that run several metres deep. It’s usually the first plot of white grapes that we pick and it gives a wine that expresses all the freshness, the fruit and the powerful identity of Sauvignon Blanc.
In line with Sucellus and the Vieilles Vignes, the Terroirs Collection is declined in 4 distinct vintages, each of them coming from the plot of old vines and vinified in oak barrels aged from 7 to 8 years, using wild yeasts.
