Region: Sancerre, Centre, Loire Valley, France Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc Drinks Best: Now - 5 Years
This is exquisite Sauvignon Blanc from vines averaging forty years of age where Morin aggressively prunes and limits yields to ensure that only the best fruit is coming in from the fields to make clean and pristine wine. As other producers in the region are often making wine more akin to riper styles of California or even New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Morin stays true to form and tradition with their wines. Bright citrus of Meyer lemon and lime bordering almost on tree fruit like apricots and gooseberry complete the palate. There’s a hint of chives, beeswax, and a distinct minerality to remind you this is definitely from Sancerre.
Pairings: Broiled Flounder filet topped with lemon curry butter
