Continuing on my post on “Bordeaux under $30”, here is the first one in a series of fine values I discovered.
2008 Premius Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc, sourced from a â€œyoungâ€ appellation known as Vin de Pays du
ComtÃ© Tolosan, has a brilliant pale yellow color with hints of green. This is an expressive and fruity wine offering citrus (lemon, grapefruit), honey, peach, orchard blossoms and faint touches of grassy notes. Dry with medium-plus acidity, there is a rich and refreshing mouthfeel with aromatic echoes of peach and citrus finishing with medium length and refreshing acidity.
At $12.95 this represents pretty good value.
Alc. by Vol.: 12%
