Domaine du Haut Bourg “Galets de Loire” Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Haut Bourg’s Sauvignon Blanc is made in more of an intense and extroverted style than is typical for the Loire Valley. Fans of New Zealand Sauvignon blanc might even enjoy this. It jumps from the glass with scents of lemon and white grapefruit intermixed with elderflower, grass, hay, and crunchy bell pepper. The palate reflects the nose with the addition of white peach and yellow apple. Look for plenty of bright acidity and a touch of minerals on this wine’s lingering finish. Serve this wine as a refreshing aperitif, or enjoy with fresh goat cheese and any food that you would want to squeeze lemon on.
