Alexandre’s grandfather was a farmer who passed along his passion for the land to Alexandre when he was just a child. It was fitting then, when at the age of 18, he decided to go to winemaking school in Beaune to study oenology, after which he set down in Sancerre. Best known for their crisp, mineral-driven Sauvignon Blancs, Sancerre is a region mostly uninterested in kicking the status quo. Bain stands out as an outlier along with Sebastian Riffault. They choose to let their grapes get ripe, for a richer, fuller Sauvignon Blanc. 

Done in stainless steel. This is a deeply ripe, rounded wine with a distinct acidic through-line that lifts it up
