Pouilly-sur-Loire produces one of the greatest Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Regis’ vineyards sit at 750 feet, surrounded by hills on the far east of the Loire River, and centered on the limestone and clay of the Kimmeridgian chain. The scattered flint in these vineyards imbues the wines with a character quite distinctive from the neighboring village of Sancerre. This wine is clean, fresh, flinty and a true expression of Sauvignon Blanc with mouth-watering acidity, depth of flavor, and fleshy texture.
Famous for his Vouvray and Montluis, Chidaine believes in minimal intervention and biodynamic agriculture. This Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards in the town of Husseau in the appellation Touraine is a great example of his philosophy. Brilliant acidity, a nose of freshly clipped grass, citrus and grapefruit peel and great mineral presence. A typical Loire Valley Sauvignon.
Chassagne-Montrachet-trained Ganevat produces ridiculously small amounts of seductive, pristine cult wines. This wine, from vines planted in 1902, shows incredible character and power, great acidity and minerality. Fish with creamy sauces and cheese are excellent pairings
