Domaine du Tremblay
Domaine du Tremblay is the ancestral home of the Tatin family. The 18th Century Berrichone manor came into the family in 1873 when it was purchased as a 200 hectare-plus cereal farm. Jean Tatin inherited the farm from his father in the late 1980s. He had studied agricultural sciences and has a degree in rural sociology from the Institut National Agronomique Paris-Grignon, which is where he met his wife, who was studying to become an educational engineer. Chantel herself comes from Polish stock (the name Wilk means wolf in Polish), her father arriving in Paris in 1921. There are three separate Quincys produced from ten hectares of vines planted in the lieux-dits of Les Rimonets, Coudereaux, Chaumoux, Gatebourse, Les Nouzats and Le Buisson Pouilleux.
Zesty and aromatic, this is a delightful wine boasting classic Sauvignon Blanc characters, with the added intrigue of a touch of coriander. The palate is steely and mineral with plenty of tang, and the finish is persistent.
Perfect to drink with goat cheese, fish, shellfish and crustaceans. Also ideal as an aperitif.
