      ABOUT THIS WINE:

      Rodolphe Marteau’s main focus is getting the best quality of grapes through various techniques such as spring de-budding, de-leafing, grassing through the vineyard, and green harvest for lowering yields. The winemaking then becomes simple. 1/3 of the Sauvignon Blanc production is macerated with skin to naturally bring down the acidity while adding body and fruit depending on the needs of the year. Then there is a gentle pressing with a pneumatic press, cooling maceration (bring the wine to cold temperature: 5°C) during 7 days, then kept under controlled temperature (17°C) for 3 or 4 weeks. The wine is aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks and then bottled in December.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

      In 2010, after spending four years learning alongside their parents at the family estate, brother and sister Ludivine and Rodolphe Marteau bought the property. They were both in their late 20’s. Although they came from a fourth generation wine making family, the young duo sought education and experience before taking over completely. They have now hit their stride, with Rodolphe caring for the vineyard and the winery while Ludivine takes care of sales and marketing. They use the wisdom of their ancestors without rejecting modern technology and innovation. "Lulu" is Ludivine’s nickname and also seemed like the perfect reference for a French wine for every day of the week. We love supporting younger winemakers making approachable, every day wines!
