Beyond the Label
Very citrusy, grassy fresh, wet stone. Good intensity, cream weight
We’ve been delighted to work with the Bougrier family in the Loire’s Touraine for over 20 years now. Their wines offer both exceptional class and excellent value. One of the most classic is Le Grand Maré – their flagship Touraine Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards close to the Loire’s Central Vineyards and the pricey appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Taking their finest quality grapes of the vintage, carefully cool fermenting the juice and lees ageing the wine for creamy complexity, this white has brilliant freshness and satisfying weight, while the quality of 2020 adds lovely ripeness. Highly recommended with seafood dishes, warm goat’s cheese salad or a creamy spring vegetable risotto. It makes a most elegant aperitif, too.
"More complexity than your average Loire white, more depth of flavour and very good value for money"
