France — Loire • $15.95 • WD Score 89/100

This is a terrific little wine. While I prefer my Loire varieties unblended, this blend of Melon de Bourgogne, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Folle Blanche is a delight. It is a firm, focused wine, quite dry, with bright acidity and very modest alcohol. I love the grapefruit edge from the Sauvignon Blanc, with a little generosity from the Chardonnay, and the stony, savoury, just-ripe ethos of the Loire itself. A fine introduction to the Loire — in spirit if not in composition. Very good value. • Tasted 2018-02-03 • LCBO id#527184 • Find it at your nearest LCBOSIGNATURE WINES & SPIRITS (Agent)
