L'Escargot Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

A screamer of a Southern French Sauvignon from James Ryland. James has been crafting delicious wines around the world for the Lurton empire but recently went solo with this project L'Escargot. Sourced from fruit grown principally on the Domaine de L'Herre this has vitality, freshness, energy and class. It's THE perfect Seafood wine that will be frightening plenty of Sancerre's and Pouilly Fume's on it's travels. Vintage: 2010 Closure: Screwcap Grape: Sauvignon Country: France Region: Cotes de Gascogne

Nicely aromatic, this combines some of the more overt grassy notes of New World Sauv Blancs with the soft citrus fruit and soil tones of the Old World. A touch soft perhaps though not really lacking acidity, this is clear and fresh on the palate, with the acidity popping more due to the lack of richness than a truly acidic nature. Very light and refreshing in style with a decidedly mineral finale. A nice wine for oysters this summer. 86pts
