More about this wine from Loire Valley, France
Not all Sauvignon Blanc is the same. Some have over-the-top grassy notes and some are dominated by notes of Bell Pepper. All types of SB have a place in this world, but Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley of France may be the gold standard. And within the gold standard, there's a place called Touraine and it is the best of the best within the Loire Valley. Vineyards have been planted in this area since the Middle Ages. So they've got some practice.

This juice hails from the southern end of Touraine. The nose is super tropical with whiffs of kiwi, lychee, papaya, and mango, and on the palate is a beautiful and viscous coating of exotic fruit that makes your mouth feel lush and opulent AF. This is classic French Sauvignon Blanc that has the power to transform your front porch into a seductive Parisian bistro.
How to drink it

Listening to...

Fluttering In The Floodlights by Yeasayer

Eating...

Live like a local. Crottin de Chavignol is a stinky, creamy goat cheese from the Loire Valley that is a classic pairing for this wine. But a white style pizza pie is damn good with this vino too!
