Touraine Sauvignon Blanc, Domaine Guénault 2021

White Wine from France - Loire
3.000000000 star rating 4 Reviews
From the Bougrier family's own property, where the chalk soils, and this fresher vintage, imbue a classical Loire minerality to the wine, making it a great alternative to Sancerre and other Central Vineyards sauvignons. Please note: although the photograph and information on our website shows a screwcap closure, due to supply issues the current batch of this wine has been closed with a cork.
Price: £9.25 Bottle

Bougrier

Maison Bougrier is a successful family-owned négociant company in the Loire founded in 1885 now run by the fifth generation of Bougriers. The company has significant domaine and winery holdings in three major areas: Touraine, Anjou and Muscadet giving it full control over vineyards, grapes and production in a number of sites.

The Touraine area produces whites from both chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. Bougrier’s premium white from Touraine is made from 100% sauvignon blanc grapes and was originally labelled for us as The Society’s Touraine Sauvignon, now sold under the Les Hauts Lieux label.

Domaine Guénault is one of the family’s own properties and situated on steep slopes overlooking the Cher river, which gives the grapes excellent sun exposure. The sauvignon here is grassy and scented and a popular choice as an aperitif.

The Daily Telegraph

More lyrical [than cheaper sauvignons].
