Domaine de la Chaise Touraine Chenonceaux Blanc 2018

Touraine, Loire, FranceIf you are a fan of sauvignon blanc, look for Domaine de la Chaise Touraine Chenonceaux. For six generations, the Davault family has been farming at Domaine de la Chaise and its 57 hectares of hillsides at Saint Georges sur Cher. They make a perfect style of sauvignon, fresh and ripe, dare I say almost New World, until you taste the balance, persistence, and intensity that firmly brings you back to the Loire. The nose is a mix of pineapple, passion fruit, and lemongrass. The palate is rich but lively with the perfect touch of bitterness (guava) and a mineral twist. A lovely wine at a terrific price, and it's sold in 38 BCLDB stores.Tasted: 05 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.99 BCLS Producer: Domaine de la ChaiseDistributors: Red Dog
