2021 Sauvignon de Touraine, Domaine Bellevue
The new 2021 vintage of Sauvignon de Touraine from Domaine Bellevue has just arrived into our cellars and it is truly an excellent wine. Because the cost of buying decent wine is on the up, look no further than this excellent Loire Sauvignon, a long favourite of mine. I'm happy to announce that the new 2021 vintage is still £10.95 per bottle, delivering terrific value for money.
Grown in Touraine in the middle of the Loire Valley, this is a good alternative for those of you who do not wish to stretch your budget to the likes of a Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé, which incidentally this Gold Medal wine is on a par with. The Domaine de Bellevue 2021 is made from 100% sauvignon blanc and it offers a delicate fusion of exotic fruit and balanced citrus notes with a persistent fresh dry finish, this is a wine which never fails to impress. Stunning!
- Simon Wrightson, Mr.Wheeler
Due to the recent release of the 2021 vintage, this wine has not had yet the opportunity to be reviewed by the critics. Here are two reviews from previous vintages;
"The 2015 Sauvignon de Touraine, Domaine Bellevue, a lemon-fresh, really rather tropical Sauvignon Blanc produced but a stones throw from the dreamiest of all Loire Valley châteaux: Chenonceau. Patrick Vauvy is the fourth generation of his family to make wine in Noyers-sur-Cher and his wines are noted for their elegance and exuberance. If the mineral-rich, south-facing vineyards were a few hundred metres further south-east, it would be classified as Sancerre and a heck of a lot pricier."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
"Terrific Touraine Sauvignon, all smoky, minerally, greengage fruit and glorious greenery-yallery peashoot pizzazz that makes it the sort of summery thirst-quencher everyone needs in their wine rack, at an infinitely more appetising price than Sancerre."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times
