L. Lebled - La Sauvignonne 2017 (vitt/white) : Sunset party in your glass
The La Sauvigonne 2017 vintage is, as its name hints to, made of Sauvignon Blanc grapes, growing since 1962 on calcareous clay in the village of Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher. But let you not fool by the old age of the vines, this wine is full of vitality and tonicity. The technique of carbonic maceration (seldom used for white wines) gives it a much stronger and sophisticated personality than usual Sauvignon blanc white wines. Playful and almost hussy at times like Sauvignon can be, its fragrant aromas will delight the happy ones drinking it as aperitif at the start of a joyful evening, while its purity and intensity will make a lasting impression, both in the mouth and in the minds and hearts. A great illustration of how wine can unfold different aspects of its personality, from frivolity to depth and complexity, in just one sip.
