I think the Saint-Bris area produces some of the best value Sauvignon Blancs in the world. They're crisp, minerally, refreshing, and can serve as an aperitif or an accompaniment to a wide variety of lighter dinner fare. This one's an excellent value and is a very typical, very well made exemplar.
Extremely pale, crystal clear gold color, with a slight greenish glint. Lively nose of clean gooseberry/green apple fruit, with a squeeze of lemon, along with a gun flinty, stony mineraliness. Bone dry, with loads of chalky minerals framing very clean, tart green apple fruit Great acidity and a clean, fairly long finish punctuated by a tiny bitter herb note. B+.
