Le Saut Mignon 2018
A Wine That's
all about the gentler side of Sauvignon; think elderflower and white peach, with a mineral streak running through the middle giving it structure — like a modernist building overgrown with wildflowers.

Where and How?
This is organically grown old-vine (60+-year-old) Sauvignon Blanc on the sandy limestone soils of Le Saut Mignon vineyard.
The wine was aged for 18 months on the lees. Bottled unfined, unfiltered and with minimal sulphites.
The Winemaker: Sylvain Dittiere
Arriving at Sylvain’s cellar mid-harvest is like arriving at an intense study group, but with wine bottles instead of books. Fellow winemakers and interns are visiting him, wine from several different vintages is being poured free-flow, and at least three conversations are occurring at any given moment in time.
You get a strong sense of passing the baton; the baton in question being winemaking know-how, learnt from many years of working with winemakers throughout France and carrying out experiments. As we sit down to chat with him, we have two young woman winemakers on either side who are getting the opportunity to learn, just like he once did.
