2017 Le Charme Sauvignon Blanc

Situated in the heart of South-West France, the Plaimont vineyards stretch from the foothills of the Pyrenees to the hills and valleys of Gascony covering a uniquely rich terroir.

Tasting Notes

A shimmering bright yellow colour, with an aromatic and fresh nose. On the palate there are flavours of citrus fruit combined with blackcurrant leaf aromas and a great roundness.

 

Producer

We share the production of our Le Charme range between two winemakers who are specialists in their own region. Whilst this may be a little more difficult in terms of logistics, it is also a demonstration of how our own wines are not just bought off the shelf, but very much crafted to suit our own exacting standards. Christine Cabri has produced our Le Charme Sauvignon since 2008 and it continues to be one of our most popular wines. Winemaking was in her blood. Remembering her earliest emotion linked to wine she says; “Aged 5 years old, on the family vineyard I would taste the grape juice as it came out of the press – it was completely delicious!”.
