Wine maker notes
Domaine de Gournier is owned by Maurice Barnouin. Located on the western side of the Rhone River, this large estate has grown to 200 hectares. The Sauvignon Blanc vines comprise only 20 hectares of the domaine and are planted in three special vineyard sites: Bourdic, Gournier, and Lys. Each location, or terroir, is a little different and adds to the blend. Bourdic, at a slightly higher elevation and cooler temperatures, provides great acidity. The Gournier and Lys vineyards, planted to a south-eastern exposure that allows extended hang-time, provide the richness that comes from the skins to attain their full ripening potential. Hand-harvested, this wine’s expressive aromas come from eight hours of skin contact before fermentation in stainless steel. The result is an intensely flavored and rich Sauvignon Blanc, with bright tropical fruits in the nose and a well-balanced palate.
