    Born from incredibly low yields of intensely flavoured berries, the 2017 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is a very strong vintage from Francois Chidaine. It combines a mouthful of fleshy ripe fruit with bracing freshness. There is also plenty of complexity from wild fermentation and lees ageing. The depth of flavour and interest here is very impressive […]
