When we tasted a lineup of samples from the Loire, there was one that stood out. It had all the classiness of a French Sauvignon, but with an abundance of tropical fruits that burst from the glass.
Savour the first sniff of this fruity, joy-filled Sauvignon... all pineapples, green apples and white peach. Then when you're ready for a sip, expect an elegant and crisp wine, with a mouthwatering hint of acidity. If you're looking closely you might even notice gooseberries and blackberry leaves. Basically, it's sunshine in a glass!
Pairs perfectly with goat's cheese and great company.
Pierre-Jean has some serious winemaking pedigree. He’s the fourth-generation winemaker at his family Chateau in the Loire. But if you think that means he’s a traditionalist, think again!
"I draw upon the learnings from the past to make the best possible wine, but I also want to break free of the ‘golden prison’ of winemaking bureaucracy. To me, a great glass of wine is an empty one."
The Toile de Jouy pattern that inspired this box is as quintessentially French as baguettes and Breton stripes. Its images of rural life are filled with people, music and laughter… All the things we missed the most during lockdown.
Look closely at the design and you'll spy the story of the wine and winemaker in the rustic scenes... Think a passing jumbo jet, a definitely-out-of-place boomerang and a very boozy picnic.
