The clay and flint soils of Tours yield Sauvignon Blanc grapes that offer the fragrant aromatic character of a New World Sauvignon and the balance of a Sancerre. This aromatic dry wine captures expressive gooseberry flavours, complimented with zingy citrus, elderflower and freshly cut grass notes whilst retaining an excellent balance, a refreshing acidity and a crisp finish.

The name of the domaine is in memory of the Seigneur of Morluz, whose lands were bequeathed to Benedictine monks. The vineyard area covers 3 Ha on the Touraine appellation stretching from the outer limits of the Anjou region to the gateways of the Sologne, in an area of confluence formed by the Loire river and its tributaries. It extends across 104 communes in the Indre-et-Loire department and 42 in the Loir-et-Cher. The main part of the vineyard is found to the south-east of Tours, on the hillsides overlooking the Cher and between the Cher and the Loire. The soils are clay mixed with flint and chalky subsoils. 12% Abv 750ml
