Emile Balland Coteaux du Giennois 2019
From the tiny Coteaux du Giennois wine region, in the upper Loire Valley. The region was only established as an official AOC wine region in 1998—although wine has been made here for centuries. Being small, and relatively unknown the region goes under the radar compared to it’s famous neighbour Pouilly Fume, which means it has some great value Sauvignon Blancs.
Really vibrant gooseberry and grassy aromas. The palate is rich with lime and grapefruit flavours with a mineral edge. Very refreshing.
Region: Loire Valley, France
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
