Following oenology studies at Bordeaux, then work experience at Château Lynch Bages and in the Napa and Barossa Valleys, Matthieu Mabillot returned home to run this family domaine; he was recently joined by his brother Renaud. They work 8 hectares in the tiny appellation of Reuilly, their forte being Sauvignon Blanc. A new find with this 2017 vintage, ‘La Ferté’ was aged on fine lees in stainless steel tank for 5 months, giving the wine a gorgeous, satin-like texture and enhancing its lively aromatics. Pale lemon-green colour, the nose is citrus-scented and fine, palate being light, focussed and full of finesse. Flavours are beautifully pure, the finish being clean and elegant.
