Domaine du Salvard has been a working domaine since 1898, through five hardworking generations of the Delaille family. Light straw with stone and tropical fruit aromas. On the palate crisp apple with lemon citrus notes. This medium-body wine was smooth and a mineral touch with overall good balance. The wine finishes with a savory touch on a mid-length ending. Nice value!

15% chard gives this an exceptional roundness along with the cutting chalky mineral notes and salty preserved lemon fruit. And half the price of Sancerre.

Clean, crisp, yes grapefruit and grass but lighter than most full Sauvignon Blancs due to the 15% Chardonnay. Easy drinking and versatile 🔥

Bright, grassy, citrus, acidity. Terrific with salmon and kale.

It's a sweet Georgia peach on a hot summer day but evidentially I'm wrong because kyle said "unbaked baked apples" but what does that even mean. 13/10 would drink again.
