Laurent Saillard - Lucky You!, Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay, Vin du France (2020)
A blend of 80% old vines Sauvignon Blanc & 20% Chardonnay. Grapes are whole cluster pressed into stainless steel, unfined & unfiltered with a minute amount of added sulphites. Doughy notes with wet earth, honey, lime leaf and crunchy pear. A gem of minerality and texture.
Sourced mainly from the famed Clos Roche Blanche in the Loire valley, ex-New Yorker Laurent Saillard is joining the new wave of vignerons in the region to create natural wines of texture, depth and intrigue.
