Plenty of mineral notes with fresh herbs, unripe white peach, green apple, and pear skin. The finish is reminiscent of grapefruit peel. A lovely and lively Sauvignon Blanc from the appellation of Menetou-Salon in the Loire Valley.

Pale lemon colour. Delicate aromas of chalk and soft herbs such as lemon thyme and chervil. Similar flavours to the wine. The light flavours aren't swayed by the moderate (+) body and alcohol of the wine. The acidity is bright.

This wine would be well suited as an aperitif or with light fish dishes.
