Tasting Notes

Domaine Begude is a small, family-owned property located high in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Limoux region of the Languedoc. The long, cool growing season lends itself perfectly to the production of crisp and delicate wines, and this Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. More in the style of a Loire Valley Sancerre, with its fine, mineral-laden nose and fresh citrus fruits on the palate, this is the perfect accompaniment to grilled fish, oysters, or just by itself. Make this one your house white! Organically certified by Ecocert.

    Sure... Sure... Sancerre may get all the glory, but the Loire Valley, and more specifically, the Limoux region, has long been crafting absolutely beautiful Sauvignon Blanc, and this is no exception. Vibrant lemon and lime, chalky limestone, and a long finish create an immensely refreshing experience!

    Splendid Sauvignon Blanc. Extremely crisp and refreshing, the natural citrus notes of the varietal come through with the beautiful minerality you'd expect from a Sancerre. At 12 bucks, this should definitely be in your summer arsenal.

    Delicate and light, this Sauvignon Blanc truly shows more of the finesse of this grape when left to it's own devices. With blossoms and crisp green apples on the nose, the tang from the acids was just right. An awesome priced hot weather treat.

    The Sauvignon Blanc is always fresh and engaging with its lime fruit, gooseberry notes and yellow capsicum. Racy and vibrant, it is a hypothetical Sancerre-Kiwi mash-up. Perfect for warm weather sipping.

    This wine shows off the beautiful cool climate terroir of Begude, with its pronounced aromatics of gooseberries, flint and pomelo which follow on the palate along with a note of peppery lemon. Full minerality and a very refreshing acidity. Definitely one of the best Sauvignon Blancs produced by Begude. A must try.
