Mikaël Bouges, Touraine La Pente de Chavigny 2012

Bouges Touraine Blanc 2012 #1

100% Sauvignon Blanc from the fossil-studded Faverolles vineyard.  Raised in stainless steel.  Organic/BIO.

Yellow-gold.  Gently oxidative.  A hazelnut richness reminiscent of Meursault in the old-school style.  Leesy yellow-apple with an impression of residual sugar; it tilts towards bruised and cidery.  Underneath it grips green, a Sauvignon paradigm of citricity and minerality.  Sui generis Touraine Blanc.  For drinking over the next two years.
