Wine Region: Loire-Valley - France Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting notes: "The aromas of white flowers, fresh earth and straw plume from the glass-like chalk dust, while a taut, racy palate provides flint-driven citrus, herb, smoke and lime flavours that just won’t quit. Amazing precision and cut." - Wine Spectator
