Famille Bougrier (Domaines Bougrier)

Cuvée Spéciale Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

I adore #loirevalley #sauvignonblanc . Here’s a typically French SB with soft grassy and tart citrus on the nose, hint of tropical fruit in your mouth, refreshing acidity. — a month ago

Domaine Ricard

Chenonceaux Tasciaca Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Wow! Mango, guava, coconut, pea shoot, galangal, autolysis. White Bordeaux-like density & texture. Easily will go 2-3 more years in a cool cellar. #touraine #sauvignonblanc #loirevalley — a year ago

Les Plantagenêts Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

Broad and earthy. Lacked precision and tension. Medium complexity and medium finish. #domaineduclosel #savennieres #cheninblanc #loirevalley #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago

Love those #loirevalley SBs - nice contrast in style compared to the NZ less-ripe SBs, though I enjoy both regions.

Château Bellerive

Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru Moelleux Chenin Blanc 2003

Deep, amber colour. Clean and pronounced aromas of stewed apricot, caramel, fig, linden flower and golden raisin. Palette follows with raisins, a subtle nuttiness with a superb balance of sugar and acid. Would be fantastic if paired with creme brûlée! #cheninblanc #loirevalley — a year ago
