The fruit of a clayey-limestone soil that brings out all the character of Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is both fruity and pleasantly fresh. "Le Grand Argentier" is elegant, smooth and has a long taste. Its beautiful aromatic intensity expresses citrus touches and flowers. A superb aftertaste.
The vineyard of Menetou-Salon stretches over 350 ha of hills planted with Sauvignon. The soil is composed of limestone sediments and is consequently particularly favourable to the expression of Sauvignon.
