Regular price £8.50

Sauvignon in over drive, power and punch. Here's what the Wine Doctor thinks of this wine A really fascinating aromatic profile here, as this combines the slightly sandy and salty minerality that one might expect in a Muscadet with the aromatic fruit profile of a Loire Sauvignon Blanc. The latter elements are fairly savoury rather than too sweet, but in all honesty it is the sandy-salty element that dominates the nose, and I confess I find it really attractive. The palate is mouthfilling, rich, with a vibrant fruit intensity, all pears, star fruit, gooseberry and the like. The substance is fairly rich and broad, this certainly being a wine of impact and flavour. It lingers in the finish a little as well. None of the raw character you can sometimes get with this variety, Overall I think this is remarkably good quality considering the variety and its origins. 16/20 (June 2012) Here Tim talks about the Sauvignon and a Muscadet from Nicolas Choblet at Domaine du Haut Bourg
