Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
Top 8% wine in the UK
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
From: France, Touraine AOC
By: Thierry Delaunay @ Domaine Joël Delaunay
From a family vineyard on the bank of the River Cher, Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is a light-bodied white that should be drunk while young and fresh. The Domaine Delaunay is run by Thierry Delaunay, a learned oenologist who took over the family estate twenty years ago.
The Delaunays have been farming their land for five generations, and began commercial wine production twenty years ago when Thierry returned from his studies. The geology at the riverbank vineyard means that Thierry can make a number of wines, many of which have received awards. The Sauvignon Blanc is grown on a less stony part of the vineyard on ‘bournais’ soils, which allow the grapes for the Domaine’s whites and Rosés to express their fineness.
