The Touraine Sauvignon 2014 is persistent and harmonious on the palate, with nuances of grapefruit and narcissi, and very well-balanced acidity; it would go well with Andouille de Vire or a chilled fish terrine. (Patrick Dussert-Gerber, guidedesvins.com, 2016)
The Touraine region is in the Loire Valley of France, an area famous for Sauvignon Blanc and light Pinot Noirs. Domaine de la Chaise comprises 140 acres of vines, located just on the hillsides of Saint George sur Cher, just west of Sancerre. It has been owned by the Davault family for 6 generations. Wine maker Christophe Davault makes this wine in the ‘New World Style’, giving it a juicy, rich and ripe character. the full flavoured nature of the wine belies the light body; just 12.5% alcohol, it is a crisp refreshing dry white wine, very fragrant with grapefuit, pineapple and passion fruit aromas. The palate is well balanced with a nice minerality. It was the Gold Medal winner at the Concours Mondial du Sauvignon in France.

This wine makes a great aperiftif on its own, or pairs well with fish, seafood and goat cheese.
