Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Domaine des Corbillières

Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The Loire Valley has come to be a place to go for real solid Sauvignon Blanc. Touraine is a place near Sancerre which has some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the Loire and Touraine is showing its moxie. I picked up the 2018 Domaine des Corbilliéres Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.

On the nose is very expressive fruit, lots of peach, lime, grapefruit, nectarine, white flowers, vanilla, pie crust, minerality and wet rocks.

The palate has notes of lime, peach, nectarine, grapefruit, minerality and wet river rock.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that follows with a long fresh crisp finish. The weekend is upon us, so please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

We can’t get enough of top shelf chenin these days. 3 hour decant, tasting as it slowly unfolds from cellar to room temp. Palate is where this shines, a real shapeshifter. Beeswax, lanolin, jasmine, finishes like a sunset—dips out of sight and leaves you with a beautiful afterglow. — 7 days ago

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Beautiful and atypic character. Very distinguishing from this producer I believe. Beside the Sancerre tone a deliciously candied citrus and stone fruit aromas — 6 days ago

Regis Minet

Vieilles Vignes Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Thursday night and the wine of choice us another Sauvignon Blanc but Old World, the 2017 Régis Minet Pouilly-Fumé Vielles Vignes.

The nose brings nice notes of lime, green apple, pear, white peach, musk melon and good minerality.

The palate shows very nice lime, passionfruit, pear, herbs, lemongrass, mineral and wet slate.

This wine medium bodied with medium to medium + acidity that moves right into a clean long mineral, citrus finish that sits on the mid-palate pleasingly. One more day until the start of the weekend stay safe and we will be enjoying the weekend soon. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Domaine de la Campanette

Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

Expressive Sauvignon blanc. Day three still drinking well. The 2018 here was a bit more citrusy than the 2917. Under $20, a steal. — 14 days ago

Domaine de Reuilly

Reuilly Sauvignon Blanc 1996

Pretty golden color with a yellow tint.

Great nose of grapefruits, spices, carmel and white pepper.

Light-bodied and engaging.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, spices, honey, butterscotch and caramel.

Long and tangy finish, without any bitterness. So delicious.

Complex and interesting, with a touch of a young Sauvignon Blanc taste.

Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and needs to be very chilled.

This 23 year old Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire is crisp and refreshing, but not as crisp as a young Sauvignon Blanc from this region.

I always enjoy tasting a small piece of history.

12.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
