La Grille, Sau­vi­gnon Blanc La­cheteau, Kiwi Cu­vée Sau­vi­gnon Blanc 2015 IGP Val de Loire

Living France - - À LA MAISON -

2015 Touraine (£8.99 Ma­jes­tic) Touraine is one of my favourite ap­pel­la­tions for Sau­vi­gnon Blanc, and La Grille is a great-value pro­ducer. It is char­ac­terised by a zesty herbal flavour, rem­i­nis­cent of cut grass or tomato stalk – sounds strange, but tastes de­li­cious! It also has loads of fresh lemon fruit, which makes it a great ac­com­pa­ni­ment to sal­ads and seafood. (£6.25 Mor­risons, £7.49 Ocado) This cheeky brand was the first of the re­sponses to the on­slaught of New Zealand Sau­vi­gnon Blanc. It’s a great ex­am­ple of the mod­ern, fruit-driven style of Sau­vi­gnon Blanc, with lots of sim­ple goose­berry fruit flavour and re­fresh­ing crisp­ness. This is an ideal bot­tle to have stand­ing by for par­ties and ca­sual lunches – it’s a real crowd-pleaser.
