New vintage of your favourite super grassy, lemon fresh Sauvignon. At his family’s Touraine cellar, Noël Bougrier knows exactly where to find the best grapes, and he’s employed them to fabulous, tongue tingling effect in this citrusy, aromatic white.
You couldn’t hope to find Sauvignon of this quality for the price in any of the Loire’s more famous regions like Sancerre or Pouilly. Blended from the year’s finest vats, this remarkable wine is as subtle and complex as it is refreshing and zingy. It’s made exclusively for us by our trusted friend Franck Chatelain at Noël Bougrier’s renowned cellar in the Touraine. The original Abbesse was one Louise de Bourbon of the nearby Abbaye de Fontevraud and a major figure in Loire history. This delicious expression of the region’s reigning grape, Sauvignon Blanc, is a fitting tribute to her. With its appealing, crisp, lemony fruit and zippy freshness, it’s delicious on its own and goes ever so well with goat’s cheese and lighter fish dishes.
"Usually prefer New World Sauvignons but could become a convert if all Old World wines were this good"
