Sacre Bleu Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Sometimes it’s just in the name, as in the case of Sauvignon Blanc. We are talking about a French white wine grape that if allowed will frow wild like a weed. Its goal in life is to live and not only that but thrive in doing so. When this varietal is expressed at its optimum, it is that often needed tickle in life. It’s expression can also be like a baby’s laugh that can’t help but make you smile. In my opinion, the best ones are the ones that give you freedom from oak, roundness and butter. After all, we are not talking about Chardonnay. Sauvignon Blanc is more about enjoying the intensity of life right now in all its sharp detail. I love them because they are crisp, tangy, refreshing and cleansing on the palate. Their natural high acidity helps to remind me about the ever-so-important zest in life. Their exquisite vibrancy can’t help but dance on my tongue as it tantalizes my taste buds. Sauvignon Blanc makes my mouth water and savor for the next flavor. Drawing the red curtains, this perfect aperitif stimulates my appetite for the rest of the evening!

The term sacre bleu has had many interpretations throughout the centuries. It has evolved from a reference to the blue robe worn by the Virgin Mary in Renaissance paintings to a contemporary expression of astonishment used by the candelabra character Lumier in the movie Beauty and the Beast. While it’s literal translation is sacred blue, today it is most commonly used to express amazement. The expression is no longer used in the major French-speaking countries France, Belgium or Switzerland, but in the English-speaking world, it is well known from Agatha Christie’s books about the fictional Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Sacrebleu is also used many times in American cartoons that depict French characters. Such examples include Disney movies like The Aristocats, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Atlantis: The Lost Empire. In the comic book, Blackhawk, the phrase is Andre the Frenchman’s favorite oath. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Don't forget to pair the Sacre Bleu Sauvignon Blanc with Gouda Cheese or Brick Cheese.
