2021 Domaine du Vieil Orme Sauvignon Blanc Touraine Blanc (Previously $14)

SKU #1608197

This family-owned domaine, located in a tiny Loire village St-Julien-de-Chédon, dates back to 1804. 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, setting it apart from Vouvray, which only allows Chenin Blanc, or Sancerre, which only allows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In Touraine, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and a few other indigenous grapes are seen at much smaller production levels. This gives the region the freedom to be creative in their blends. In this expression of Domaine du Vieil Orme's 100% Sauvignon Blanc, snappy sweet pea and gooseberry aromas give way to a softer palate, while pear, white peach, and grapefruit zest all make an appearance. The acidity is 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.

It's alfresco drinking perfection for under $15!
