Oisly, Loire Valley, France
Appellation: Touraine and Touraine Oisly
In the county of the Loir et Cher (41), on a vast plateau between two rivers, right next to the Château de Cheverny, a few minutes from Blois and just 30km from the majestic Château de Chambord, Domaine de Marcé is in Oisly.
Located in the Touraine appellation area, his very distinctive Sauvignon (Touraine and Touraine Oisly) is known far beyond the hexagon of France.
The pretty gently sloping hillsides, facing the rising sun and its mild climate, Oisly’s great specificity lies in its soil made up of fine sand on a layer of clay.
The sand brings finesse, elegance and suppleness.
The clay retains water and thus avoids the water stress of summer. It brings depth and substance.
The Domaine has 35 hectares of vines, 80% white and 20% red
