a.o.p. Touraine Sauvignon
A highly aromatic wine with a deliciously lingering aftertaste.
Silver Medal, "Concours mondial du Sauvignon" Sauvignon International Competition, 2016
Boasting a pastel yellow robe, this wine is infused with intense white flower aromas with a hint of citrus fruit. The palate is an exquisitely fine blend of supple, rounded flavours with underlying notes of blackcurrant buds. A minty-fresh finish. Serve it between meals or to whet the appetite, and food pairing ideas include asparagus or seafood and, if you can get it, Selles-sur-Cher goat's cheese.
