2019 Sauvignon de Touraine, Domaine Bellevue
Patrick Vauvy has been a long-term friend of ours as well as Domaine Bellevues winemaker for nearly 30 years. With this new vintage he managed to craft the purest expression of sauvignon blanc offering elegance and refinement often missing in many new world examples.
Due to the recent release of the 2019 vintage, this wine has not had yet the opportunity to be reviewed by the critics. Here's an assessment of 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 (2015 vintage)
"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 (2018 vintage)
A cornerstone of our portfolio for over a decade, this wonderfully ripe 2019 vintage 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.
