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 at Noël Bougrier’s renowned family 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 pear salad, grilled white fish or a creamy prawn dish.
