Clement et Florian Berthier P'tit Sauvignon Blanc (750ml)
"Remarkably aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. On the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity. Fresh fruits and touch of thyme are often found in this lively and bright wine
In 1983, Clement and Florian's father moved to their mother's village, Sainte-Gemme-en-Sancerrois, where, together, the couple built Domaine Berthier from scratch. The domaine has continued to grow for nearly 30 years in Giennois, one of the tiniest appellation's in the Central Loire. Florian (the younger son) honed his talents as a vigneron in French vineyards in Burgundy and abroad (New Zealand and Oregon). He now manages the vineyards. In 2012, Clement (the oldest son) joined the business having spent 2 years in Canada and the USA as assistant winemaker in the Willamette Valley, OR (Solena Estate). He is now handling winemaking and marketing. Today, the brothers work nearly 25 hectares with great care and dedication to producing outstanding quality wines. They consider their farming practices to be very sustainable -- no herbicides, no pesticides, no anti-botrytis and, in some areas, they are practicing organic."
