75cl * 12% ABV * Loire Valley, France
The sustainable Caves de la Loire co-operative represents over 120 high quality growers across the region, the fruits of whose labours only go into the Chatelain Desjacques range. This highly aromatic Sauvignon bursts with zingy lemon and gooseberry through to the chalky, mineral finish. Crisp and mouth-wateringly fresh, it would make for a good aperitif, but will sing when paired with baked fish or soft cheeses.
Interesting fact: The Loire is the longest river in France at 634 miles long, the same distance as Land's End to Dundee!
