    THE STORY: This superb alternative to Sancerre, from Chateau Cantenac Brown is grown on a small (1.8 hectare) vineyard, where the heavy clay soil is better suited to aromatic whites than long-lasting reds. Ninety percent of the blend is Sauvignon Blanc, which lends a characteristic nose of elderflower and white peaches, while the balance of Sémillon adds weight and a citric waxiness to the finish. Barrel fermentation adds a further degree of complexity to the finished article.
