GASPARD SAUVIGNON BLANC, FRANCE 2021
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Loire Valley, France
What's So Special: All the wines are made with the traditional and most popular varieties from this iconic region, from the fruity spicy Cabernet Franc to fresh citrusy Sauvignon Blanc or the beloved Chenin. The grapes are sourced from growers who work sustainably or organically (no herbicide) across different vineyards in the Loire Valley, are fermented with native yeast, spend a couple of months on their fine lees and then undergo only light filtration and fining. The joyful labels are the creations of a Parisian artist. “Gaspard” is a traditional French boy’s name that means “bringer of treasure” – a fitting title for these easy-drinking gifts that keep on giving.
Tastes Like: Notes of freshly-cut grass, lemon verbena and lush exotic fruit make it irresistible to all Sauv Blanc lovers, no matter which region you’re usually after.
Pairs With: The wine is perfect on its own, or you can enjoy it with goat cheese, as the typical Loire Valley pairing goes.
