We enjoyed this. Best described by Oxford Wines:

“Superb and concentrated old vine Sauvignon Blanc with aromatic flavours of gooseberry and limes intermingled with superb touches of wet stone minerality. Guy and Cedric Allion of Domaine du Haut Perron have 23 hectares of vines on the wonderfully exposed slopes of the Cher’s right bank in the Loire Touraine Appellation. The soils here are clay and limestone embedded with flint which is known as ‘Perruches’ in the area. These flint deposits give their wines their trademark crisp minerality”

They do need to degreek their website! http://www.guyallion.com
