Sauvignon ‘A peu près’, David Maudry, Loire, France 2022
Regular price £15.80
The refreshing, cooling, palate is delicious, with so much length for a wine at this price. It has a good dose of fruit too - pineapple, and grassy notes –, and just a little of that gun-flint smokiness, that we like so much about wines from this region.White Sauvignon Blanc 13%
David Maudry is the son of Patrick Maudry of Domaine de Fontenille, in Tracy-sur-Loire. His parcel of vines are younger than most on the estate and are not classified for use as Pouilly-Fumé. As such his wines offer amazing value for money, showing all the elegance and style of classic Pouilly-Fumé without the price tag. Like all top class Sauvignon Blanc from this point in the Loire Valley, David's wines are laden with mineral flavours with particularly distinct flinty notes. On the palate, there is a well-balanced citrus and gooseberry tang, underpinned by a slight smokiness.
