The name comes from the fictional poor girl who became a princess. Cendrillon, the French name for Cinderella.
This wine is made from the best Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the biodynamic vineyards that surround the cellar on the hill outside the village of Richelieu. Just 30% of the Sauvignon Blanc spent some time in old oak barrels to provide additional complexity.
This is a fascinating wine. The first couple of sips mark it as an interesting wine but, gradually, it opens up in the glass to reveal citrus notes and a fine line of minerality as well as a complexity that belies its price.
