Gilles Louvet O Sauvignon Blanc Pays d'Oc 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of honeycomb on the nose with hints of caramel, dried melon and candied apple. Rich, soft and slightly sweet on entry, this is decidedly atypical for Sauvignon Blanc, showing more honeyed Semillon-like character with lots of sweet, apple-y fruit that is supported by bright acidity. The mid-palate is richly flavored and picks up melon notes as it transitions to a modest and more typically refreshing finish. Shows some nice plum skin notes. Unusual but not unattractive, and organic. 85pts

“Leading the way in French organic wines” Located in the Languedoc region in the south of France, Gilles Louvet is dedicated to creating environmentally friendly wines that are both rich in quality and healthy in their production. All wines are certified AB (Agriculture Biologique) in France. Since its creation in 1993, Gilles Louvet Vineyards has become a prominent force in the organic wine world: it is the #1 supplier of certified AB wines in France, and #2 supplier of certified AB wines in Europe. Gilles Louvet himself, founder and owner of the vineyards, has had a passion for organic farming since he observed his grandfather’s practice at a young age. This passion, stemming from a family business grew into am individual lifestyle: he now dedicates all aspects of his life to a natural, untainted way of living. Altogether, Gilles Louvet Vineyards works with 300 winegrowers, getting steady supply from 50 producers and 10 cooperatives wineries, as well as from his newly acquired 170 acre property (Domaine St Felix des Toureilles and Domaine des Iris). The dry and warm Mediterranean climate lends itself perfectly to growing organic grapes and allows Gilles Louvet to rediscover wine as it was made in the past. Using the unique quality of this climate combined with the richness of the soil and the natural resources of biodiversity. Read less
