Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc
Localization: I.G.P. Perigord | Dordogne, France
Tasting Notes: Daniel Hecquet 's house white is known for its high quality at an affordable price. It’s a beautifully elegant, fresh, dry white with rich notes of green apple and lime.
Notes: PUY 170 derives its name from the elevation (170 m) of the sustainably farmed vineyards located east of Montravel and Bergerac from which the fruit is sourced. In addition to viticulture, this area is interestingly known for raising ducks and draws travelers looking to experience the local cave paintings. Hand-harvested, carefully sorted, and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at below 20°C to retain freshness.
Food pairing: Pairs nicely with appetizers, fish, and goat cheeses.
The Domain: Château Puy-Servain, located high in the Montravel and Bergerac appellations, is owned by Daniel Hecquet– one of the region's best and most innovative winemakers. Daniel is an accomplished oenologist, having honed his skills while working at Château d’Yquem and Chateau Figeac before returning home to Puy-Servain.
