The delicious, melony, honeyed 1997 Sauvignon Blanc is all that a wine from this grape should be... crisp and elegant, with minerals in the background, and copious amounts of fruit. Drink it over the next year.

This cold climate Sauvignon exhibits the tangy, tart, mineral, citrusy character of this area. With floral scents and aromas, good vibrancy and acidity, and plenty of fruit, its undeniable minerality provides an additional note of complexity. Drink it over the next year.

The Barbou family's 2008 Touraine Sauvignon lives up to their long-run track record for generating some of the consistently finest - not to mention best-value - Sauvignon Blancs on the planet. This rendition is more concentrated yet also more delicate in weight and bright in personality than the richer 2007 or 2005. Spearmint, peppermint, pennyroyal, pink grapefruit and lemon zest, and caraway in the nose lead to a lithe, refreshing palate saturated with luscious, zesty, herb-infused, salt-tinged grapefruit and lemon. The finish is the epitome of the invigoration and lift that wine from this grape can deliver, leading one to wonder why so many growers and importers - not to mention consumers - so often settle for so much less Sauvignon quality, especially when delivered at a much higher price. This will be a delight for at least the next two years.

The Corbillieres 2009 Touraine Sauvignon is not the finest in the Barbou family's long history of outstanding successes and amazing values from this grape, but it delivers considerable juicy satisfaction and levity for its vintage. Scents of mint, passion fruit, caraway, and fennel lead to a piquant, relatively rich yet refreshing palate. This finishes with an impressive, subtly oily yet invigorating cling of aromatic, bittersweet herbs, caraway, lemon rind, salt, and crushed stone. Enjoy it over the coming year.


Winemaker's Notes:

Founded in 1905, the estate has been in the Barbou family for four generations. Dominique Barbou’s great-grandfather tripled the area in 1920 before buying the Domaine itself and its name in 1923. Light, bright, pale yellow in colour, with greenish lights, this clean, fresh Sauvignon blanc has perfumes of gooseberries and freshly cut grass, characteristic of good Sauvignon. Nicely balanced ripe, gooseberry fruit, with surprising weight and good length. The zippy freshness continues to the finish.
