Fournier Père et Fils Sauvignon 2015
Domaine Fournier is one of the most important estates in the Sancerre area. Their 150 acres of vineyards are spread across the Sancerre appellation and include top sites in the villages of Verdigny, Bue and Maimbray, which enable them to produce wines of sophistication and complexity. They also own well placed sites in Pouilly-Fume and Menetou-Salon. Their state-of-the-art winery is designed to minimize handling of the grapes and allow for careful selection on sorting tables. Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks preserves the fruit and freshness. The Estate is directed by Claude Fournier, who is also the winemaker. He is dedicated to producing top quality wines of great elegance and finesse.
A fresh and crisp pure Sauvignon from the younger vines of the estate. A fantastic value!

Wine SpectatorShows good energy, with racy acidity driving a bright core of white peach, chive and gooseberry notes, backed by a twinge of flint. Drink now. 6,000 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastInspired by Sancerre, but with grapes from other parts of the Loire, this soft, herbal and green-fruit flavored wine is refreshing and lightly textured. Drink now.
