From: Loire Valley, France
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Taste: A very aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, Les Carisannes shows classic aromas and flavors of citrus, green apple, freshly picked herbs, and minerals. This Vin de Pays du Val de Loire is lighter in weight and texture than Sancerre, but its crisp, flinty, citrus-forward character make it a delicious wine to enjoy any day you’re craving fresh feels.
Pairing: Think green! Asparagus, arugula, zucchini, cucumbers, basil, fresh herbs, soft cheeses, dishes that incorporate pesto or citrus work wonderfully well alongside this charming wine. Also, seafood or light poultry dishes work just as fantastically. Some examples include sautéed white fish, the gamut of shellfish, oysters, fish & chips, and foods flavored with fresh herbs— either as a marinade or alongside the dish. We love main courses that include capers and lemon (check out the recipe below!) accompanied by an arugula salad and radishes with this Sauvignon Blanc. Lastly, we would be amiss to not mention that Loire Valley Sauvignon Blancs are a timeless classic when served alongside goat's milk cheeses, especially those from the Sancerre region such as Crottin de Chavignol and chèvre.

About. Domaine Hubert Brochard produces classically styled Sancerre blanc, rosé, and rouge from their family-owned winery in Chavignol. The domaine is now run by the fifth and sixth generation of Brochards with 152 acres under vine in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, and Vin de Pays du Val de Loire.
The domaine is spread across eight communes. These diverse holdings give the Brochards a range of soils. Terres blanches, or Kimmeridgian marl, gives powerful wines. Silex, or flint, yields wines with a strong mineral character, and chalky caillottes bring attractive aromatics to the wines.
Sauvignon Blanc Les Carisannes comes from a five-hectare vineyard in Bannay near the Sancerre appellation. The name Les Carisannes is a contraction of the names of the three sisters and granddaughters of Henry Brochard: CARoline, ISAbelle, and ANNE-Sophie. Stony soils and vinification in stainless-steel tanks yields a fresh-tasting wine with notes of minerals.
