Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: A.C. Loire Valley France
Sancerre, a sub region of the Loire Valley, is the spiritual home of Sauvignon Blanc. Passion, Tradition, Authenticity… these words are the motto of this estate. This family owned vineyard has been growing grapes and making wine with care, finesse, and passion for generations. Their aromatic wines boast freshness and complexity typical of the limestone and clay-limestone terroirs.
Very pale straw in colour with a bouquet that gives the first impression of intense flinty, minerally notes verging on gunpowder. Being typically aromatic, the wine opens up with air, taking on more fruity nuances, in particular of ripe pear. A balanced palate of ripe citrus fruits, quartz and minerals. This wine is very elegant – the essence of the Loire Valley captured in a bottle.
With: Whiting fillets, apple & watercress salad, hazelnut vinaigrette
