Domaine de Marcé Touraine Oisly Coulee Galante
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This dry white wine is one of the most beautiful expressions of Sauvignons de Loire , the fruit of a unique terroir, the Sologne Viticole, and recognized know-how.
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: The Domaine de Marcé uses sustainable farming.
Tasting Notes: Aromatics like grapefruit, gooseberry, guava, Kaffir lime, white flowers, honeysuckle, mandarin orange, and crushed stone underneath a light herb component. Racy minerality and acidity slice through the rich citrus- and tropical-loaded palate, triggering a Pavlovian-like reaction. It’s ample, superbly refreshing, and impossible to put down after one glass.
Although located in the Touraine appellation area, Domaine de Marcé is located in a smaller region on the borders of Sologne and Touraine called La Sologne Viticole. To pinpoint it on a map, the winery is in the Department of Loir et Cher and the village of Oisly,
Seventh-generation winemaker, Christophe Godet, grew up with these vines. After attending school for viticulture and oenology, took over management of the vineyard from his father, Daniel, a veteran of 50 harvests. Even in retirement, Daniel still offers advice and remains attentive to “his vines.”
