Sauvignon Prestige 2016 IGP Val de Loire - Domaine de la Ragotière


This Sauvignon Prestige is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris, more common in the Loire than the Chardonnay but still quite original. Aged in glass tank for a few months, it’s a very fresh and aromatic wine with notes of grass, exotic fruit (kiwi), citrus (grapefruit) and a very generous finish. For an aperitif or after work drinks, if you are more Sauvignon than Chardonnay than this has to be your pick!

What experts say  
Decanter.jpg

Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards "Grassy aromatics with hint of kiwi and smoke. Apple and leafy tones on palate. Tasty and good value." (previous vintage)

  
Gilbert-Gaillard.jpg

87/100 "Pale gold color, green reflections. Floral nose (blackcurrant bud) on a background of grapefruit. A Sauvignon with a beautiful aromatic palate, which unfolds around a tart and generous finish. Very good entry level wine, to pair with grilled goat cheese." (previous vintage)
