Oisly et Thésée

Loire, loire France

This co-op is located in the quiet village of Oisly and specialises in Touraine Sauvignon Blanc. Established in 1961 when the growers from two villages came together, the co-operative now has 25 growers who farm 250 hectares and 750 vineyard plots. The aim is to vinify each plot separately. This enables the winemakers to show the grower the wine made solely from their grapes, something which is rare in the world of co-operatives. At the same time, suggestions are given to growers to help them improve vineyard practices which would result in better wines the following vintage. Oisly's technical director, Agnès Bardet, has been working there for over 20 years, beginning in the laboratory and vineyards, so she knows each grower's vineyards intimately. She now runs the winery and coordinates the harvest for each grower.

We were impressed with the precision, aromatics and overall quality of their Touraine Sauvignon Blanc. This can be attributed to Agnès' work with the growers and the varied blending options she has due to the numerous fermentations carried out on each grower's grapes. Low fermentation temperatures ensure the primary exotic fruit aromas are retained in the finished wine. The result is an excellent wine that offers superb value.
