Touraine Sauvignon 2011 - 14/20
This wine estate is located in Mesland and run by Laurent Saget and Emmanuel Clavier. Its 43 hectares of vines are cultivated using sustainable growing methods. The Sauvignon grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness levels thanks to their sandy and siliceous soils before being macerated for 12 hours in order to extract the aromas and aromatic precursors. This wine displays a relatively deep yellow hue, heady notes of white flowers on the nose (more acacia than broom), a touch of blackcurrant leaf and citrus notes dominated by grapefruit. The attack is smooth and precise with excellent structure and persistence, characteristic of the varietal.
