    The "vieil orme" or "old elm tree" is my new go to Sauvignon Blanc! This wine is perfect for popping after work on a Tuesday. It not only has the clean, no oak profile that fans of Loire Sauvignon Blanc love, but also good body and some exotic almost kiwi like fruit. Best of all, it comes together with a bright, dry, long finish. This is a lot of SB for the money!
    Top Value!

    Amazing new staple wine with the longevity to get you from summer to New Year’s! If you love the bright minerality of Sancerre but not the expense, try the Domaine du Vieil Orme Sauvignon Blanc. Exquisitely crafted, refreshing, and at a price that far belies the incredible quality, this is party perfection in a bottle. Crisp and crowd-pleasing, the Orme showcases Touraine's dazzling rocky terroir while maintaining easy drinkability and layered texture. One of our best Loire whites of the 2016 vintage - sophisticated, complex, and most importantly, delicious.

    If you're looking for a crowd-pleasing white for a get-together or party, this Sauvignon Blanc from Touraine should be at the top of your list! It's fresh and vibrant with lime, grapefruit and a sort of limestone minerality. There's an undertone of slightly under-ripe pineapple and lemon blossoms. While this is still crisp and zesty, there's a slight roundness on the palate, as this wine spends four months maturing on the lees, giving it a little bit of creaminess that makes this a great cocktail wine to drink on its own or an easy match for any number of food pairings.

    While I'm already a fan of good Touraine Blanc, this one raised the bar a bit for me. Zesty lime aromas are upstaged by generous citrus flavors, mouthwatering acidity, impressive mid-palate punch and a lengthy finish. A serious value Sauvignon for sure.

    This organically produced sauvignon blanc is a new staff favorite. Bright melon and peach notes, friendly minerality, and softness are the key components to this easy drinker.
