Le Jade Sauvignon Blanc
Les Costieres de Pomerols
France - Languedoc-Roussillon

The wine comes from sun-drenched vineyards planted on the best terroir, selected for its physical and geographical characteristics, on clay and limestone hillsides called "costieres" (coastal region), only a few miles away from the Etang de Thau - a coastal lagoon that is situated between the port of Sete and Marseillan.

This Sauvignon Blanc boasts a silvery straw color. Crisp and fragrant white wine with wonderful aromatic intensity, fresh exotic notes, delicious fruity aromas of citrus and gooseberry. A great varietal expression, this is a zesty and refreshing wine that lingers on the palate.

Wine Type
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Agricultural Practices
Grapes are harvested at maturity (11.5 degrees -12.5 degrees ). Skin-contact maceration for several hours during the filling phase of the pneumatic press. Injection of inert gas and cooling of grapes to 15 degrees C. Selection of free-run juice. Juice stored cold (8 degrees C) with stirring of gross lees before settling. Temperature-controlled fermentation (15 degrees C) and the filtered lees are then re-incorporated. No malolactic fermentation.

Serve with Bouillabaisse (fish soup), Bourride (local fish-based specialities), or even a fresh exotic fruit salad.

Le Jade Sauvignon Blanc - Somm Journal

somm journal purple logo"Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc that sees extended skin contact prior to pressing; the juice is then cooled to 59 degrees Fahrenheit for fermentation. Aged on the lees prior to filtering and bottling, this wine is vinified without malolactic fermentation or oak treatment. The result is fresh and vibrant, with a light straw color and crisp acidity. Wonderfully fragrant with citrus on the nose while showing gooseberry on the palate, it’s a summer sipper built for serving with bouillabaisse or bourride-both specialties of the region—or even with fruit."

bti"Silvery straw color. Lively aromas and flavors of pineapple, yellow apple, melon, and Meyer lemon with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long finish with notes of lemongrass, pear, and lemon with no tannins and no oak. Bright and crisp with layers of juicy pineapple, pear, lemongrass and ripe melon make this perfect for repeated sipping or enhancing fresh farm to table cookery."
