Current owner-winemaker Cédric is at least the fourth generation of Allions to farm this property, but it was only in 1968 that his father Guy converted the land from mixed use farming to vineyards. Cédric followed in his father’s footsteps – in fact, going even further and studying viticulture and oenology at the Lycée de Beaune. Cédric assumed the running of the estate in 1990, where he produces really quintessential, well made wines

Fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc is picked at night to ensure optimal freshness. Clear and bright robe with a beautiful pale yellow colour with green glints. On the nose, the wine exalts pronounced aromas of citrus fruits and white flowers characteristic of this grape, such as elderflower, as well as notes of boxwoods. On the palate, the wine is supple and well balanced with a certain raciness. Great length on the palate, and nice balanced on a fresher style of the Sauvignon Blanc.
