Details

Sauvignon de Touraine PIERRE-OLIVIER BONHOMME, organic wine, wild and mineral Sauvignon Blanc, low in sulphur, rich in flavour, depth, freshness. This fantastic Sauvignon from Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme is a triumph. It retains that sense of the wild and the untamed but I defy you to find a brighter, fresher, crispier Sauvignon at this price. The colour is a light gold, with aromas of walnut, elderflower, fresh orchard fruits and grapefruit. It's unbelievably fresh with subtle mineral notes, hints of honey and herbs to add some complexity. It's round, weightier than your average Sauvignon but spliced with that lovely refreshing acidity you expect from the grape variety. Top, top Touraine Sauvignon, makes the NZ equivalent seem positively lifeless!

After originally working with Thierry Puzelat, Pierre Olivier Bonhomme took over the running of this estate when Thierry went back to his family estate at Tue Boeuf. Thierry has been not unnaturally, described as the 'Pope of un-sulphured wine', and Bonhomme certainly sings from the same hymn sheet. His wines may seem a little whacky at first, but these wines are a truly authentic expression of grape, and get more refined every year. The Sauvignon is one of our best sellers for lovers of white wine looking for a Natural fix and is really excellent at the moment - full of grapefruit, florals and a wonderful richness. The estate is of course organic, and is run as naturally as possible, with wild yeast ferments and very little intervention.

    This has been a favourite of ours for a number of years now and every year delights . 2017 seems a little more floral than 2016. It's fresh and and crisp - ideal for the current hot weather in the garden!

    Crisp, fresh and lively start, lots of citrus fruit, touch of honey, smooth and round to follow and a really satisfying and mouthwatering finish. A real bargain too.
