Sauvignon Blanc "Cuvee Jeanne” is beautifully balanced and aromatic with suggestions of passion fruit and grapefruit. The palate is crisp and dry but not too acidic with a good depth of flavor.

Wine maker notes
The juice from the crushed grapes stays at 0°C for ten days before fermentation begins in order to produce and enhance its fruity aromas. Fermentation is maintained at 13°C to express all the aromatic potential and to bring balance to the wine. After the fermentation, the wine rests on its lees for a while to achieve more body and fullness. No oak is used in this wine.
The wine is perfect as an aperitif or with chicken, fish or creamy pasta dishes
Mel and Janie are from England but both now US citizens. Mel has been in the wine business ever since leaving school and he met Janie when they were only twelve and thirteen (she played the piano and he played the guitar!) and as they grew up together, they shared a passion for food and wine. They married at 19 and 20.
The couple left England to live in France in 1970 and started a company called Master Wines and began selling little known French wines in the USA. Mel was a pioneer in bringing great wine values to the USA from France.
