Gout A Goutte Sauv' qui peut 2019
Ariane Lesne of Domaine De Montrieux started to make some negociant wines to help financially as the main estate was hit by successive frosts (and continues to be). It's also allowed Ariane to experiment with some other varietals.
A near equal blend of Sauvignon and Chenin. These grapes come from Domaine De Cambalu. The ripe tropical fruit of the Sauvignon is kept in check with lovely salinity from the Chenin. Ariane is a big fan of the Sauvignon released by Christophe Foucher of La Lunotte and you feel something of his influence in the ripe fruit here.
Sauvignon (55%), Chenin (45%)
