This 100% Sauvignon Blanc has all the freshness and precision you can ask for. Now this wine comes from a small region just 15 miles northeast of Sancerre; Coteaux du Giennois is a hidden secret that the French love to keep to themselves. The piercing gold color is your first hint at the wine’s vibrant personality. I love how the wine’s nose is full of orange blossom and lime with hints of herbs and chalk dust. The flavors wake up the palate with zingy grapefruit and quince with a subtle touch of minerals and freshly cut grass. The bright acidity keeps the finish alive and carries out nuances of gooseberry and white flowers that tickle your tastebuds. A wine like this is so flexible with all kinds of springtime food; a lightly dressed salad topped with grilled halibut and avocado would be a great pairing to really bring this wine’s flavors to life.
