2017 Domaine Hervé Séguin
Good weight and intensity, notes of gooseberry, grapefruit, a touch of herb and cut grass. The tell tale gun smoke adds complexity, delicious fruit weight, with a lovely acid lift and brightness to the finish. L&S (Oct 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Domaine Hervé Séguin
A 17 hectare family property just half a mile east of Pouilly-sur-Loire. Philippe, part of the the third generation to work the estate is quietly spoken but has a firm hand on how he wants to do things. Traditional viticulture reigns here and fuss-free vinification. After débourbage a long cool fermentation (4 weeks at 17C) is followed by a short period on the lees with three batonnages to fill out the palate. The wine, which is bottled in the March after the harvest, has super fruit character (citrus notes, pink grapefruit and pineapple) and also the typical “gun flint” flavour you'd hope to find here - which goes remarkably well with seafood, fish with butter sauce, and goat's cheese.
There's such a appetising zip to good Sauvignon Blanc. It makes the perfect refreshing aperitif and richer examples match seafood so well. Here are four of the best to inject some life into tired palates.
