About the Wine

Christophe Foucher makes atypical Sauvignon Blanc. Harvesting the grapes only when fully ripe, he forgoes the usual clichés of under-ripe gooseberry, cut grass and suchlike, achieving something more dense, deep and complex. His tiny chai is filled with barrels where the wines go through an unhurried élevage, another part of the process that elevates these wines to another level. 

Rossignoux came about when, fortuitously, the 2020 vintage provided a bounty of grapes; so many in fact that all of his barrels were filled, leaving wine to hand. This cuvée is vinified only in tank, stripping it of the idiosyncratic oxidate notes that often characterise Foucher's wine in favour of something more linear and fresh.
