Tasting Notes

A partnership between Rodolphe and Ludivine Marteau, the fourth generation to make wine from their family's estate. Of their 29 acres, 20 are devoted to Sauvignon Blanc. With vines averaging 20 years and very detail-oriented farming, they harvest the best quality fruit possible. Tasting notes from the importer: "The nose offers an intense 'fruit basket' dominated by citrus scents with a note of blackcurrant bud. In the mouth, all is suppleness and elegance. The final spicy note emphasizes the freshness and the generous length of this Touraine Sauvignon."

    Classic Loir Valley Sauvignon Blanc but without the Sancerre price tag. This is clean and crisp with citrus undertones and chiseled minerality on the finish. Here is a palate cleansing, bracing and food friendly bargain.

    This high quality Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc is, at once, delicate and classic. It has the classic citrus fruits of this region (think lemon lime) and an overlay of green apple and orange. Nicely done and very, very, drinkable and delicious!

    The 2017 vintage of Le Coeur de la Reine provides everything I want in my warmer weather drinking. With hints of citrus scents and blackberry fruit undertones, supple and elegant with a spicy finish really brings a balance to this wine. Even the name itself is pretty nifty - le couer de la reine means the heart of the queen in French. If you're looking for a new everyday white wine with an interesting tasting profile this is it. At this price I would stock up!
