This 100% Sauvignon Blanc is best with oysters. Has 13% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. CSPC 106773

TASTING NOTE: This junior cuvée comes from limestone rather than flint soils (Pouilly-Fumé, like Sancerre, has both). The colour is steel-gold, with very fresh, floral aromas and a tense yet tender palate shaded entirely in vivid green-pastel acidity. It's less complex than its sibling cuvées, but the purity and restraint are near-faultless: a great buy. Drinking Window: 2018-2022.
