Domaine Bain

Loire, France

The vineyards (4.

9ha) are situated in Tracy-sur-Loire in the north of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation on south west oriented slopes mixed between Portlandian limestone and Kimmeridgean clay. A lot of work amongst the vines: pruning, de-budding, leaf thinning, whilst neither pesticides nor artificial fertilisers are used. Travail du sol is effected with the aid of a horse. This method of working the soil, the vines, the grapes and the wine is based on ecological responsibility and the desire to create a wine that offers the maximum of pleasure. Which it does. The wine is vinified in cement. This is a lovely expression of Sauvignon with ripe kiwi fruit and a particularly tangy finish. There is more richness to the wines of domain Bain compared to those of his contemporaries. Rather than steeliness, Bain Sauvignon has a richness and depth not often associated with Loire Sauvignon. They are full bodied wines but also minerally and there is often a distinctive tangerine aroma.
