Tasting Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc from Touraine displays an intense, classic nose of cut grass, pepper and, believe it or not, pineapples and lemons, with plenty of minerality. Very crisp and refreshing, like a cross between a classic Touraine and a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, at an astonishingly low price! Perfect with seafood. Grown in an area located between the Loire River and the Cher River and sandwiched between the towns of Tours and Blois, the wine shows the classic characteristics of the rich clay soils that are fortified with flint and limestone. Very bright and cheery and drinks well at any occasion, even those occasions that call for those unfortunate little clear plastic cups that you have to use outdoors. (Eric Story, Loire Buyer)

    Nice and zippy, with aromatics that remind me of a softer New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with lots of elegance. Perfect for appetizers, salads, outdoor events and parties.

    There’s no mistaking the varietal here: this is indubitably Sauvignon Blanc. Lemongrass and pepper have the van, followed by a tropical/citrus dimension, and, lastly, wet riverine rocks. All those aforementioned notes recur on the palate, with the fruit taking up a little more bandwidth in the overall scheme of things. This has a tad more to say about what it is made of, than where it is from, compared with other Loire Valley Sauvignon Blancs, and so is a nice crossover wine for fans of domestic or Kiwi bottling of that varietal. Perfect breezy, light-on-the-pocketbook refreshment.

    Mineraly but not mineral driven. Fruity but not rich or heavy. Herbally but not green. Tastes like it should cost more but it doesn’t. Sit back, relax and enjoy a refreshing glass.
