Ad Vinum Some People
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc
Ad Vinum is the winemaking project of Sebastien Chatillon, a former head sommelier at Le Chateaubriand in Paris who moved to the Gard to pursue his dream of making his own wine. As befits his previous job, Seb excels in trusting his senses to blend small parcels of grapes, often in unusual combinations, to create perfumed and memorable wines, eschewing sulphur or other additions at any stage.
Some People is Sauvignon Blanc from a thirty year old parcel planted over sand in Vallabrix. This was given a direct press straight to barrel, where it remained for nine months. A gentle, perfumed wine that draws you in with varietal notes of elderflower and lime before a clean, salty finish.
