Terre de Marne Côteaux du Giennois, from talented winemakers Clément and Florian Berthier, is an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc, grown exclusively on marl soils, that shows the quality achievable in this small region.

Jean-Marie Berthier, a highly skilled wine producer from Loire valley, created this estate in the early 1980’s. Today, his two sons Clément and Florian have taken over the domaine to produce a distinctive range of wines, covering a variety of styles and Loire appellations as the estate has expanded.  Having previously worked in Burgundy, New Zealand and the USA, Clément and Florian brought a modern approach; looking to produce clean, precise wines which display a distinct sense of their origins. In 1998 the Berthier family purchased the Montbenoit estate in Côteaux du Giennois.

Côteaux du Giennois is a tiny 191 hectare region and only a recent appellation, despite  archaeological evidence of winegrowing from the 2nd century in the area. The wines from here can offer a great value and more fruit-driven alternative to their famous neighbours of Sancerre and Pouilly.

The Terre de Marne is a single terroir release, from a parcel of vines  growing on soil composed of Kimmeridgian marl with small oyster fossils.

The wine is fermented in temperature-controlled vats to retain freshness then aged on its lees for few months before bottling to build extra weight and complexity.

Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Note: Ripe and round with textured notes of yellow plum and grapefruit followed by earthy minerality. An outstanding expression of Sauvignon Blanc.

Food Match: Delicious with trout in parsley and caper butter.

Closure: Natural Cork

Farming Practices: Contains Sulfites
