Wine Region: Loire Valley - France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting notes: This Cuvee is very floral. Fine crisp and very classic Sauvignon bland by Vincent Pinard, there is plenty of fruit here, lemon, lime, and grapefruit zest with ripe juicy acidity. A strong complex terroir dimension is obvious too, with its chalky, mineral touches.
