Terre de Silex comes from very specific soils, located in the town of Saint Père. The vines are planted in clay soil with flint (Silex) from the Cretaceous period. The unusual concentration of flint found in the soil is responsible for this wine’s subtle aromas of gunflint. Lovely purity of fruit on the nose and palate but this wine is all about tautness and those mineral gunflint aromas. Delicious.
