Le Domaine arises from a confusion of the garden center that provided them with plants, and 1,000 strains of sauvignon blanc were “poured” into the farm that, years later, the winery has used as a base for Le Domaine. Tests were carried out with malolactic fermentations and it was also decided to expand the coupage with nearby varieties of the region, such as verdejo, to which have been added others that do not specify in the label.
The prunings were studied and it has been tried that the harvests of all the varieties that form this white were next to each other, since it is made joining the musts and leaving them to ferment all together.
The malolactic fermentation starts in deposit and the alcoholic is already made in barrel, where the battonage is applied or removed from the lees and where the wine spends five months. In total, the production has been of 45 barrels for a target that carries as a flag the being “of guard” and as such is labeled.
