This French Sauvignon gives out mild, kind of weird, citrus aromas. The taste is much better with the Sauvignon Blanc flavours. Citrus, light grassiness with nice fruitiness. Decent dryness, but the finish is quite short. Nothing exceptional, but refreshing as should be. A little too tarty and mild overall.

Rating: 3.4/5

For those who have noticed, we do not do much French wines. We are of French roots, so nothing against them, but a lot we get here is overpriced for the quality. This one is an exception. Label caught our eye and who does not like a Sauvignon Blanc in summer. Pours a great fruity nose of typical Sauvignon Blanc with hints of smokey wood. Rich sweetness of grapes, well-balanced with the mild dryness and light sourness. Yep, just well-balanced all-around Sauvignon Blanc that we recommend.
