From: IGP Périgord, France
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Taste: Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux (and adjacent vineyards, such as here) has its own charm. Completely different from Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc, the fruit leans toward slightly ripe notes and away from pure minerality and grapefruit. Read: less acid, more yellow and a hint of orchard fruit, and though it has its own minerality, these white wines are a great alternative to the popular New Zealand wines.
Pairing: Think of fresh pairings here. Green vegetables like asparagus, zucchini, fresh peas, and artichokes work wonderfully. Salads with fresh herbs and mild vinaigrette, white fish (poisson en papillote), crab cakes, and chicken with zesty lemon and herb components.
The estate. In the extension of the hills of St Emilion about twenty kilometers from Bergerac, the vineyards of Montravel cling to hills bathed in sunlight. The estate takes its name from the locality, which means Summit (Puy), windy or served by the wind (Servain). The vines that undulate on the slopes of these hills enjoy particularly favorable sunshine. The ideally drained soils cling to a limestone base that favors the minerality of the wines.
