Joël Delaunay is owned by Marie and Thierry Delaunay, the 5th generation of the Delaunay family. They own 27 hectares of vines in Touraine, in the heart of the Loire valley. The vineyards are kept with as little pesticides as possible and some of the wines are certified as biodynamic. The wines are easy to pair with food and make beautiful combinations with a variety of dishes.
Winemaking and trroir
The vines are grown in the subregion Chenonceaux, with a terroir covered in silex – a local soil with a high proportion of flint stone. The grape juice is macerating with the grape skins for 20 hours, and the wine is then fermented in stainless steel barrels on the lees in order to increase the character.
The wine has clear notes of apple, lemon, elderflower and nettles along with a pleasant minerality and fresh acidity which makes the wine seem fresh dispite a clear fullness.
100% Sauvignon blanc
