From the bottle:
“Guy Saget is a family owned and managed Loire Valley winery, now in its 8th generation.
A dry white wine with flowery fruit flavors on the palate with good length and mineral notes. Ideally pairs with seafood or as an aperitif.
The 2009 Guy Saget Domaine de la Perriè Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc exhibits aromas of peach, lime and green apple. The wine tastes of tropical fruit and citrus with flinty minerality and lots of acidity. (The high acidity should make it good match for high acid foods like lemon chicken.) The wine has a nice, medium-long, dry finish. This is really quite a good Sauvignon Blanc, getting a high ranking of an 8 on our Taste scale, but the $18 cost hurts it in the overall ranking. Nevertheless, a nicely balanced wine to try out.
