Wine Region: Loire, France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Pale yellow with bright green-tinged highlights. Very intense. At first, fresh notes of blackcurrants, boxwood, peppermint and tarragon dominate. The nose then evolves towards fruitier notes of lemon followed by exotic fruit such as mango and passionfruit. Aromas of kiwi fruit are also revealed on a mineral and spicy background (coriander and green pepper). First impressions are full-bodied and supple with appetising notes of blackcurrant. The acidity then progressively rises, echoing the ripe, lemony flavours found on the nose. Flavours of exotic fruit and mango coulis bring it softness. The finish is long and structured and reveals notes of lime and grapefruit peel.
