Winemaking Notes: Crazy Beautiful Wines have been working with the same co-op in the Pays-de-la-Loire since 2014. Jolie Folle's grapes come from multiple vineyards located in the heart of the Loire Valley, near Les Caves de la Loire. Grapes are pressed immediately and kept at 41-42 degrees Celsius on fine less debourbage for 8 days. The wine is then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks for 11 days.
Terroir Notes: The Valley terroir is exceptionally diverse. Consisting of standstone, schists and volcanic rock in the West, to clay, sand and limestone in the East. The climate typically allows for hot summers, mild winters with plenty of sun.
Tasting Notes: This Sancerre styled Sauvignon Blanc has notes of ripe citrus and French pear that finish with a subtle minerality.
