Le Coeur de la Reine 2018 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
Loire Valley France
Enjoyabilityfactor 90 Rating
These vines average 30 years in age and are meticulously tended by the family. Short-cane pruning, selective ploughing, spring debudding, deleafing, grass cover throughout the vineyard and green harvest practices all lend to limited yields and best quality fruit at harvest. Skin maceration for 60% of the cuvée for 6 hours, gentle pneumatic pressing, and a cool maceration (5°C/41°F) for 7 days. Fermentation at 17°C/63°F for 3-4 weeks followed by elevage in tank on the lees. Refreshing with good acidity, yet a round mouthfeel. Typical gooseberry, freshly-cut grass and hints of grapefruit.
Must be ordered.
