Deliciously fresh acidity, lively and juicy sauvignon.
The domaine Guy Allion has been in family hands for generations. It got its name from the father of the current owner, who was the first to focus entirely on viticulture. His father, Raymond Allion, ran a farm in which viticulture was only an afterthought, in addition to grain and pastures for the cows, goats and horses. Guy Allion made the big changes after taking office in 1968. By 1991, the company had completely switched to viticulture. The domain, then known as the Domaine du Haut Perron has grown from 6 hectares in 1953 to 30 hectares now. The domain and a large part of the vineyards are located in the Cher valley, tributary of the Loire, in the municipality of Thésée, also called Thésée la Romaine, because here are remains from the second century, thus the Gallo-Roman period. Due to its location on the right bank of the Cher, the vineyards have an ideal exhibition, from the southwest to the southeast. The planting consists of more than two-thirds sauvignon blanc (68%), a grape that produces beautiful characteristic and aromatic wines. In addition, we find here gamay (13%), from which delicious rosé and smooth red wines are made. Other grapes are côt or malbec (7%) cabernet franc (7%), pinot noir (3%) and chardonnay and chenin (2%) for Crémant de Loire. A special domain, where delicious, typed wines are made.
Well typified. Nice and fresh and open in the fragrance, slightly exotic, with green apple and citrus. In the taste delicious fresh acidity, goose and a touch of grassiness. Lively and juicy. It's good as an aperitif. Also to be poured with a platter 'fruits de mer', fried or poached whitefish with not too heavy sauces.
