Complices de Loire Pointe d'Agrumes Touraine Sauvignon 2018
François-Xavier Barc joined forces with other winegrowers who share his philosophy and passion for wine to create Complices de Loire. Their approach is based on stringent selection of parcels, sustainable cultivation techniques, and traditional vinification processes. Maison Complices de Loire has been producing wines from different appellations in the Loire Valley, from Pouilly-Fumé to Saumur, since 2010. The different single parcel cuvées are vinified in barrels and tanks with true precision and keep alive the spirit of top red and white Loire wines. They stand out for their "juicy" fruit quality which has been a winner with wine lovers.
Pointe d'Agrumes is produced from grapes from thirty-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines grown in limestone-clay soils and vinified in stainless steel vats. On tasting, it produces notes of white flowers and citrus. It is full bodied, and enlivened by an attractive acidity which gives it great persistence, enabling it to be enjoyed with fish and seafood dishes.
