Sauvignon Blanc, Dom. de la Rablais - 2023

Item # 20680 750mL

Undoubtedly, Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most likable French grapes to make white wine. And, we'd like to add that the Loire Valley is the region to look for this storied wine as it is planted throughout the valley. This is an unoaked version, fresh and lively and ideal at the table whether it be alongside an aged goat cheese or croquettes.

As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.

Sauvignon Blanc

Few varietals have spawned as bizarre a list of descriptors as Sauvignon Blanc. Believe it or not, “cat pee” is in fact a complimentary tasting note, associated with some of the best bottlings. (It’s a somewhat odd way of pointing out herbaceousness in the wine.) Cat pee aside, Sauvignon Blanc (sometimes called "Fumé Blanc" in California) is a bit of a chameleon in terms of style, and quite utterly at the whim of the winemaker.
