Last week I was fortunate enough to taste five French Sauvignon Blanc wines with a master sommelier and another wine guru.
The event was sponsored by TasteLive and included the following line up.
2012 Domaine de la Charmoise (Henry Marionnet) Sauvignon Blanc Touraine – $13.99
2011 La Garrelière “Le Blanc” Sauvignon Blanc Touraine – $16.99
2011 Ricard “Les Trois Chenes” Touraine Blanc – $14.99
2011 Xavier Weisskopf Sauvignon du Touraine – $13.99
2012 Jean-Francois Merieau “Hexagonals” Sauvignon Blanc Touraine – $13.99
As you can see, these are reasonably priced wines. I wasn't sure how much difference I would taste...but the variety of tastes ranged from not very acidic to much more mineraly to an even balance.
Great event...and I have some new favorites.
