Great value here with this Old World style Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire. Thierry Delaunay Touraine (2017) is bone dry with gooseberry, citrus and a flinty minerality characteristic of the Loire region with its sandy, chalky and flinty clay soils. Excellent Old World Sauvignon Blanc that has the herbal grassy power and concentration of a New World wine. Pure lime focus in this mouth-watering, medium-bodied French white wine. This Sauvignon Blanc is zesty expression of the Loire Valley soil and climate with a soft yellow-gold colour and crisp finish. Pair it with fresh fish or drink as an aperitif. There's an attractive yellow-gold hue with green tints. Finishes brightly with lemon zest. Pair with vegetarian dishes.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, crab cakes cheese, poultry.

Reviews and Ratings

Thierry Delaunay 2017 is a well-priced Old World Sauvignon Blanc with a New World focus under $20. This is a medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc with mouthwatering acidity. Soft gold with green tints in the glass, this wine is concentrated herbs, lime and lemon zest. Pair with vegetarian dishes. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
