It was Sauvignon Blanc that lured Bertrand to Valen??ay and the soils, which are chalky and sandy clays flecked with flint the perfect ingredients for making a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc with a forceful varietal expression and plenty of citrus and green fruit flavors. While he is permitted to add Chardonnay, Bertrand feels that it only detracts from the quality of his Sauvignon Blanc. Gentle pressing, natural yeast fermentation in stainless steel tanks, four months in the fine lees.

Nestled in Selles-sur-Cher, a small village on the banks of the Cher with its gracefully crumbling ch??teau, Le Claux Delorme is a 15 hectare estate that Bertrand Minchin purchased in 2003. The soils here are quite different from those in Menetou-Salon ?€? primarily chalky sand with flint gravel. While traditionally the wines of Valen??ay are blends, Bertrand prefers the racy, forthwith and aromatic qualities of pure Sauvignon Blanc when grown on these soils. Bertrand farms Le Claux Delorme sustainably with certification from the French Ministry of Agriculture.
