Natalie's Score: 88/100

Pure lemon and lanolin essence! Stunning with no heavy oak but packed with flavour and body. Great acidity for food. Double yum! Previous vintages of this wine have won the Silver Medal at the Concours des Vins du Val de Loire. Vibrant, clean and fresh with a long, racy finish. Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: lightly buttery seafood, asparagus-chèvre omelet, Asian chicken salad, pasta, avocado and papaya salad. Smart Buy Wine

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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.

Gold Medal winner at Concours des Vins du Val de Loire, 2012. Classic Loire Sauvignon Blanc aromas of asparagus, peapods and citrus are joined by a lovely note of freshly mown grass. The palate offers excellent replays with a crisp acidity. Good mineral note and a great finish. Enjoy this value priced wine. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012
