2019 Domaine du Vieil Orme Sauvignon Blanc Touraine

SKU #1489601

The family-owned domaine dates back to 1804, located in a tiny Loire village named St-Julien-de Chédon. Since 2009, Laurent Benoist has been at the helm, focusing his efforts on sustainable farming and pure, terroir-driven wines. As a region, Touraine has the flexibility to plant a wide range of varieties, so it’s different from the more formal areas such as Vouvray, which only allows Chenin Blanc, or Sancerre, which only allows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In Touraine, they can grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and a few other indigenous grapes seen at much smaller production levels. This gives the region the flexibility to be creative in their blends and wine making. In this expression of Sauvignon Blanc, snappy sweet pea and gooseberry aromas give way to a softer palate with pear, white peach and grapefruit zest all making an appearance. The acidity is of course vibrant and fresh, and there’s a pleasing tinge of lemongrass on the finish. Try it as an accompaniment to seafood; mussels make a particularly good match.

Consistently, the Vieil Orme ranks as one of my favorite go-to Sauvignon Blancs from the Loire. The tremendous 2019 vintage delivers gorgeous lime amd lemongrass aromas. A hint of bay and even some tropical nuances round out the palate. Dollar-for-dollar one of the best Sauvignons you'll find anywhere/
