LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE
SAUVIGNON BLANC VAL DE LOIRE BY VIGNOBLE DROUARD 2020
We love white wines like Sauvignon Blanc Val de Loire by Vignoble Drouard 2020 all year round, no matter the weather. Along with bubbly and rosé, fresh whites are the perfect way to start your meal, or to enjoy a glass while cooking. Some of the greatest moments in life are built around good food and great friends. Preparing a meal and thinking about the wines that you are going to enjoy with it is like writing the perfect sonata.
The Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc is more than just Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. The terroir in the region is considered to be some of the world’s best with limestone and clay interspersed throughout. All of which is consistently found in the greatest wine regions around the world.
With climate change rapidly taking both the alcohol levels and prices of both aforementioned regions to the moon, value seekers like us have had to look at the surrounding areas. Here you find incredible sites that for decades were shunned as they could not get the grapes ripe.
Today, these vineyards are producing some of the best-value, bone dry Sauvignon Blancs of the world. This wine, from a family that we know and love, is just that.
