Golden yellow colored wine; the nose is clear, intense and complex. Main aromas: citrus fruits (orange, tangerine), exotic fruits (passion fruit, ripe pineapple). Few floral notes (lily of the valley) and pinesap. Wonderfully rich, with good length and freshness.

N/Apts The Washington Post– 2019 vintage

FOR THE 2019 VINTAGE – 2 1/2 STARS
Here is an outlier for Loire Valley sauvignon blanc — it is noticeably riper and fuller than is typical for the region. I might have guessed it was from California, but it is unmistakably sauvignon blanc, with herbal and mineral notes typical of the variety.

The ripeness is apparent in the texture and body of the wine — mouth-filling, fleshy and soft. The alcohol level noted on the label is higher than average for the region, but the wine does not taste hot.
