Think of a delicate, floral Sancerre and then think of a better, brighter, more huggable world in which that wine is close to half the price. That’s what our Fleur de Printemps Touraine gives you. It’s as pretty as a picture, with elderflower and white floral notes that pirhouette over a core of lemon sorbet, while there’s an intense streak of minerality that belies this wine’s lesser known appellation.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc that even the anti- Sauvignon Blanc brigade can warm to. An absolute winner with grilled fish. A slurp for you and a glug for the baking dish, which would adjust the right amount of zest and refreshment.
FROM THE PRESS
“For those who adore the sharp focus and tautness of classic Sauvignon Blanc, this is the wine to purchase.”Bruce Palling, The Week
“This Leclair family wine balances between crisp herbal flavors and riper tropical-fruit richness. It reflects the warm vintage in its richness and ripe acidity. Green fruits are cut by citrus, adding to both freshness and the full flavors.”Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast
