Petite Sauvage, Sauvignon Blanc 2021, Loire, France
Tasting Note: A basic sauvignon blanc with herbal whisps.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of lemon-citrus, crabapple and damp forest floor.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sauvignon blanc has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium finish with notes of lemon-citrus peel.
The wine is straightforward with hay notes.
Basic, old-world sauvignon blanc.
Bottle Note: This mineral driven sauvignon blanc vineyards that are close to Paris enjoy a cool climate and clay soil. Often called “baby Sancerre” due to its location and winemaking style, this wine has an intense expression of rich tropical fruits which pairs wonderfully with all kinds of cuisine.
