Natalie's Score: 88/100

A vibrant, zesty Sauvignon Blanc from France's Loire Valley. This is an historic region that's new again, with clean, crisp, refreshing modern styles of wine like this one. What I like most is that this Sauvignon leads with citrus brightness: lime and white grapefruit (it's not grassy or herbal at all). Perfect for salads and seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Pale golden yellow with mild lime and green apple aromas. Refreshing palate of grapefruit, Bosc pear, lime and oak. Crisp mouthfeel and lime finish. A great summer wine for white fish or salads.
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light yellow and almost watery colour with some nice minerality and stone fruit on the the nose. The mouth-feel is zingy and full of citrus flavors. Very enjoyable and easy drinking all on it's and the acidity would make it ideal for salads and light fare.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour, showing enticing aromas of pear, line, and a slight smokiness make this quite different than the current trendy New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. The taste repeats the nose, with the addition of a touch of sweet lemon. The lemon and lime carries to the finish. A very nice green salad or patio wine.
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bring on spring with aromas of freshly cut grass and lemonade! The palate boasts flavours of lime and slightly under ripe stone fruit, with a lingering citrus finish.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A delicate nose, that offers tree fruit and sweet floral aromas. A very interesting palate thanks to the chalky minerality, and no real presence of grassy herbaceousness which it typical of this varietal. A crowd pleasing (extra dry) Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc that would complement a wide array of creamy seafood dishes. Tasted November 2014. 87+ points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nov 23, 2014: Pale straw, shy nose with faint pear, citrus, apple, honeysuckle.
Light body, flavours of apple, lemon citrus, honeydew, not much complexity/depth but texturally, very intriguing with decent acidity and a drying chalky mineral mouthfeel. Would like to try this with oysters.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light aromas including lime and a hint of grapefruit, green and fresh but not grassy or herbaceous. Very clean on the nose and the palate. Perfect for summer sipping on the patio or try with light seafood dishes.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

It seemed somewhat discreet at first, with hints of citrus and herbs.Even in the mouth at first,it is a bit shy,but it blooms on the mid-palate, so i would urge you not to serve it too chilled.It has a nice length. Would be lovely with fresh oysters sprinkled with a little lemon juice.
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Alex: Some funk on the nose--a bit of sausage, lime and grapefruit in the background with a touch of gooseberry and it's very flinty as well. Quite floral and pretty in the mouth, with the impression of flinty minerality with racy acidity. Lemon and gooseberry on the finish, this is a much leaner style of sauvignon. 86pts
Priya: Now I'm not a sauvignon blanc fan but this was a nice wine. Super crisp and a bit lemony however it didn't give me much in terms of aroma. It felt to me like a lover who keeps his walls up and won't let you in. I prefer mine to get nice and close. 82pts
Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Pale colour, initially musty on the nose, with eventual aroma of citrus and apple. Tart on the tongue with clear lemon and lime flavours. This is a wine best served with food - I'm envisioning white fish with a mango salsa.
Philippe Perreault - Sommelier rated this wine as 75/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow color with a nose of lime, grapefruit, herb and lemon.

The wine is crisp, elegant and long.

Pair it with a salmon tartare.

Serve it at 10-12 degrees.

Ready to drink.
Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:

A very citrus forward Sauvignon Blanc with grapefruit and lime aromas along with apple and hints of pear.

Similar to the nose flavours of citrus and green apple.
Fabulous Faith reviewed this wine as follows:

I am a really big fan of Sauvignon Blanc blanc and I found the scent of this wine surprising. Despite an initial muskyness on the nose the flavour is crisp and clean with mild fruity notes. Would pair well with salads, Mediterranean cuisine, grilled meats or fish.
