French : Domaine Octavie Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc (2018) Terra Vitis
Isabelle & Noe Rouballay own and run this charming small domaine in southern Touraine on a plateau between the Loire and Cher rivers at Oisly.
This family run domaine is totally focused on producing quality wines. They adhere to the TERRA VITIS approach, which is a system which minimizes the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides. Domaine Octavie has been in the same family since 1885. Isabelle & Noe Rouballay are the 5th generation to grow their own grapes and produce their own wine on the estate. With 30 hectares of vineyards primarily devoted to Sauvignon Blanc, the weather is oceanic with continental influences.
Notes: The bright golden-yellow colour opens up to an expressive nose that combines the smells of citrus with notes of white flowers and mineral nuances. A nice balance of acidity and fruit, this beautiful Touraine is delicate and harmonious
