Domaine Fouassier has been a family estate for 10 generations, covering 59 hectares, planted mainly with Sauvignon on the steep slopes around the village of Sancerre.
In the era of standardization, the estate has been avant-gardist in the vinification of their wines by lees. Refusing modern winemaking techniques, they let nature do its work for the elaboration of their wines by practicing an agriculture that respects the soil, water, living beings and natural rhythms, in order to produce lively, authentic wines that are representative of the Sancerre terroir. The whole estate is Biodyvin certified.
Skin is a maceration cuvée of Sauvignon Blanc in terracotta amphora from Tuscany, the grapes will remain whole for 9 months and then matured for 7 months. No inputs nor sulphite are added during vinification or bottling.
In the blind, it would be difficult to tell where this wine comes from. It has a very spicy aromatic profile with substance but still a lot of freshness. It is an orange wine that is rather easy to access for less seasoned palates.
Enjoy it on sushi, mature cheeses or truffle risotto.
