Terres de l'Aumonier Chenonceaux

Sophie and Thierry Chardon of L'Aumonier have been based in Touraine since 1996, working with the Sauvignon Blanc the area is famed for as well as Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Côt (Malbec), Gamay and Cabernet Franc. Farming has been organic since 2006 and biodynamic since 2021 with the soil a mixture of the argile and silex.
Top class organic Sauvignon Blanc from l'Aumonier's best plot on the prestigious Chenonceaux hill. Finely poised between aromatic and savoury with passion fruit, citrus blossom, biscuit and baking spice aromas and sublime texture thanks to 12 months lees ageing.
