Jacky Marteau "Lulu" Sauvignon Blanc 2020

About the wine:

Bright, crisp, and clean Sauvignon blanc. Sustainable farming. De-stemmed. One third of the Sauvignon Blanc production is macerated with skin to naturally bring down the acidity while adding body and fruit depending on the needs of the year. Gentle pressing with a pneumatic press, cooling maceration (bring the wine to cold temperature: 5°C) during 7 days, then kept under controlled temperature (17°C) for 3 or 4 weeks. The wine is aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks and then bottled in December.

About the producer:

The domaine consists of 29 hectares of sustainably farmed vines on some of the finest sites in Touraine- on the south back of the river Cher. In 2010, after spending four years learning alongside their parents at the family estate, brother and sister Ludivine and Rodolphe Marteau bought the property. They were both in their late 20’s. Although they came from a fourth-generation wine making family, the young duo sought education and experience before taking over completely. They have now hit their stride, with Rodolphe caring for the vineyard and the winery while Ludivine takes care of sales and marketing. They use the wisdom of their ancestors without rejecting modern technology and innovation. The delicate, mineral driven freshness of the wine also gave us an idea for the label, which is bright, light and inviting. Lulu seemed like the perfect name, and it seemed all the more perfect when we realized that Lulu was Ludivine’s nickname as well!
