From the bottle:
“Guy Saget Estates is a family owned and managed Loire Valley winery, now in its 8th generation.
Clean refreshing with a good length the taste is a whirlwind of freshness, complexity, finesse and ends with notes of ripe melon. Ideally pairs with goat cheese or as an apertif.
Sauvignon Blanc is definitely growing on me. I must admit that in the past this has not been my favorite varietal. Lately, however, I’ve been tasting some really delicious wine made from this grape. Add to that the fact that I’ve enjoyed the other Guy Saget wines I’ve tried recently, both red andwhite, and today’s wine was an easy choice.
The 2010 Guy Saget Estates La Petite Perriere Sauvignon Blanc begins with aromas of citrus (lots of lemon), some tropical fruit and floral notes. Tasting the wine shows a really a good combination of flavors with pear, lemon, ripe melon and tart green apple. The finish lasts for a long time and features a little citrus zest plus lots of guava. Overall a very pleasant and food flexible wine with good flavor at a great price. Cheers!
