Domaine La Piffaudiere Pif Sauvignon Blanc 2015
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Touraine|
|Brand||Domaine La Piffaudiere|
Olivier's Pif Le Sauvignon is a beautiful, light but expressive Sauvignon Blanc. It's grown on sandy, flinty soils and manually harvested. Olivier lets the wine sit on its fermentation lees and after 3 months in 500-liter casks and tanks bottles it without fining and just a light filtering. With very few tropical notes (unlike most Sancerre/Pouilly Fumés these days), it reminds one of what wines from those regions used to be. Bone dry, with bright fruit and lovely acidity to whet the palate for more, ending in a long finish.
