Adele Rouze farms naturally and produces less than 1000 cases of this fantastic Sauvignon Blanc in a region just outside of the Sancerre zone. A zippy white with plenty of citrus and herbal flavors, kept in check with an underlying minerality and crisp acidity. Enjoy as an aperitif or with fish or fowl.

On the left bank of the Cher river, in the Loire Valley, lies the vineyards of the Rouze family. The sandy, gravelly soil gives the wines a bit more acidity and a bit less aging potential. The result is a zippy white with plenty of citrus and herbal flavors, kept in balance with the underlying minerality and crisp acidity. Only 28, Adele eliminates the last juice of the pressing which can contain bitter flavors. The process starts with a cold soak to get maximum aroma. The temperature is then raised and fermentation occurs without artificial yeast. Her parcel contains 80 year old vines on top of a south facing slope.

Quincy is an Appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) in the Loire Valley wine region of France which produces dry white wine. It grows in two communes: Quincy and Brinay in the department of Cher. After the consecutive replanting of the vineyards because of the Phylloxera epidemic, Quincy was the first commune to be awarded an AOC in this part of the Loire region, on 6 August 1936.
