In Via Sauvignon Blanc 1L
Lilian Baudin butted heads with the appellation authorities in 2019: he regularly runs into trouble with them because he insists on hand-harvesting (the only one to do so anymore in the region) and using wild yeast to make the purest interpretations of his terroir. For him, this is the way to make the best wines. This cuvée was deemed "not Pouilly-Fumé enough" so he declassified it and named it In Via (The Way in Latin). Hand-harvested from 35+ year old vines grown on clay-limestone soils in a south-facing parcel named "Les Moulins a Vent" (The Windmills), it's fermented in stainless then transferred to cement where it rested on its lees for 12 months. Lightly fined and unfiltered at bottling (there will be deposits), this offers smoky, flinty lemon notes with a lovely mouthfeel, while saline and mineral aspects cleanse the palate. And best of all, it's in Liter format.
