Natalie's Score: 89/100

Did you know they make Sauvignon Blanc in Burgundy? A zesty, vibrant white wine that refreshes the palate and acts as a great companion to seafood and vegetarian dishes. With this unique Burgundian wine you can now impress your guests. And the Sauvignon Blanc grapes are only found in the Saint-Bris appellation. Vibrant, lemongrass and lime aromas leap out of the glass. Mouth-watering and juicy with terrific minerality and length. Medium-bodied and refreshing.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: grilled white fish, pork tenderloin, chicken salad.

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A delightful discovery! Crisp, dry, with subdued, fresh fragrance of sweet young green peas, pear and slight trace of oak. Fresh tree fruit,citrus, oak and slight vanilla on palate. Bright acidity and more oak on the finish. A subtle seduction.
From the lone Burgundian AC permitted to be planted with, and to produce, Sauvignon Blanc. This example, which needs some time to air after opening to bring it out fully, has a great Chablis-like quality in its minerality. Crisp with plenty of acidity, this is juicy and offers green apple, lemon, gooseberry, and fresh hay notes. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, Nov. 2013.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
