Alexandre Bain - Plan B No. 68 2018
Due to a lack of healthy grapes, Alexandre is forced into a plan B in 2018. He buys grapes from friend Bannwarth (Alsace) and in Irancy (Burgundy), which he picks himself and brings to his cellar in the Loire for vinification.
Sylvaner, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc, when the blend is ready Alexandre still misses a fresh component, so he adds 10% to Sauvignon Blanc from his La Lévee vineyard. The wine ferments naturally on tank and matures in old wood. A rich full white nature wine which screams for a fine meal as an accompaniment!
