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.
