The 2011 Domaine De La Gitonniere Touraine , composed of 100% Sauvignon Blanc, has intense aromas of leechie, pineapple, faint lees and linden flowers that are more intense on the nose than on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity and medium finish. It is food friendly as well as a sipper; drink now – 2017+. My impression: NICE, 89 pts – recommended for its quality and value. Tasted at 'Loire Valley Tasting' http://grapeselections.com/Loire-Valley-tasting/ in Oct/13.

Textbook Loire Sauvignon showing simple, pure expression of the grape and terroir. Light straw with silver green tinge in the glass. Classic aroma of gooseberry, green bean, lime and mineral. Bone dry, medium body, refreshing crisp acid with ripe fruit on the pleasing finish. Very crushable, especially in the sun, especially with goats cheese and basil on toast. Great value, make it a house wine. Drink now. Tasted Sept '13
