Lovers of crisp, mouthwateringly refreshing Sauvignon Blanc have to check out the Loire's wonderful white wines. It's where Sauvignon wines started, after all.

For sheer quality and value, look no further than Claude-Michel Pichon's super zingy Sauvignon Blanc. Those grassy-gooseberry aromas are here by the noseful, with flavours of fresh grapefruit with a touch of peach.

Any Sauvignon fan won't need an excuse to drink the nation's favourite grape variety, but if you do, all manner of seafood, or perhaps Asian-influenced cuisine should work perfectly.

Fresh, fragrant and ridiculously appealing Sauvignon Blanc - think of a reason not to.

The Producer

Claude Michel Pichon is the sixth generation of the family to take the reins at the family estate in the heart of the Nantais vineyards of the Loire Valley. He expanded the domain's vineyards to a total of 92 hectares with the vines an average age of around 30 years old.

Winemaking

The grapes are crushed and then macerated for 12 hours before being pressed followed by 21-28 days fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Maturation occurs in stainless steel tanks with stirring of the lees (the dead yeast cells left over from the fermentation process).

The Region

The climate in the Nantais region is very different from that of the rest of the Loire Valley. With close proximity to the Atlantic, the climate is temperate and wetter than vineyards further inland, with poor soils ideally suited to make fresh, dry whites.
