Vineyard Notes: The L. D'Ange is produced from Sauvignon Blanc grown on Kimmeridgian soil, farmed using biodynamic and organic practices.

Tasting Notes: The style of the wine could be compared to Sebastien Riffault’s wines, as they both seek peak ripeness of Sauvignon Blanc by picking their grapes much later than the rest of the producers in the region. Alexandre Bain's wines are quite different from a classic Pouilly-Fumé style – richer, more aromatic and dense. This difference is deceiving though; as Alexandre says, "My wines are pure expressions of my terroir and the Sauvignon Blanc variety, nothing added and nothing taken away." The L. D'Ange cuvee has a bit of a bite with spice and pepper notes.
