Saumur Blanc Cuvee Les Pouches

Saumur Blanc Cuvee Les Pouches 2017

Saumur, Loire, FranceDry, tight, lean and steely, this is from the 7ha Les Pouches vineyard in Saumur, from chenin vines averaging 45 years. Stainless and screw cap keeps this wine fresh, with green apple, green melon, lemon, and lime zest. There's a sheen of chenin's characteristic honey that thickens as the wine warms in the glass, accenting a light chalky tug. This youthful, straight wine spent 3-4 months on fine lees before bottling. Ideal for shellfish, this has me dreaming of fresh prawn season.Tasted: 19 December 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 private wine shops Producer: Alliance LoireDistributors: Waldorf Wine Group Inc.
