Tortoise Creek Wines Sauvignon Blanc Cuvee Jeanne Cotes de Gascogne 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Leafy on the nose with some heirloom apple aromas topped with notes of green chile and cut grass. Broad and a touch soft on entry, this is in an easy drinking style that delivers modest peachy flavors on the palate. The finish is modest with a nice mineral twang on the finale. Simple and easy. 80pts

Fresh, grassy and a bit figgy on the bright, citrus nose. There’s a bit of residual CO2 here adding some prickle on entry, but this settles down into a slightly rich style, showing off those figgy tones from the nose along with a steely lemon/lime quality to the fruit. Light and fresh in style with a bit of an earthy edge to the modest finish. 84pts

A clean and bright white with a citrus flare. Notes of passion fruit and apricot. Finishes with a grassy edge. Goes great with goat cheese & prosciutto.

Our 2011 Sauvignon Blanc "Cuvee Jeanne" is beautifully balanced and aromatic with suggestions of passion fruit and grapefruit. The palate is crisp and dry but not too acidic with a good depth of flavor. The wine is perfect as an aperitif or with chicken, fish or creamy pasta dishes. - Winery
