Calvet, Touraine, Sauvignon Blanc, 2012

Tourains Sav B 2606 F

An homage to our trip to the Loire Valley – Calvet Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.

I was mildly surprised by the quality of this offering, probably because of the Calvet name on the bottle.

A typical Touraine; nice dry citrus tang, well balanced, nice aroma of ammonia cut grass.

Their 2013 vintage has won a medal at the Paris Agricultural Show and I look forward to tasting it.

Les Deux Pins Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

From the Languedoc, though the label suggests it was blended and bottled by Les Grands Chais de France at Landiras in Bordeaux where it also blends Calvet.

Purple hue, nice fruit, dry mouthfeel.

We enjoyed it.

I see this on regular offer in Dunnes.
