Want a change from the up-front grassy  gooseberry sauvignon blancs from New Zealand?  Then try this Pouilly Fumé from the Loire, it adds mineral and chalky flavours to its S.B. grape’s herbaceous, grassy and gooseberry notes

The wine:
Lacheteau Pouilly Fume is a well-crafted wine  produced from the sauvignon blanc grape and made in the Pouilly Fume area of France’s Loire region.

The verdict:
This is benchmark Pouilly Fumé: An elegant wine that adds mineral and chalky flavours to its S.B. grape’s herbaceous, grassy and gooseberry notes.  If you are shopping for an up-front grassy gooseberry flavoured wine – then a Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire region is not for you. Try one from the Australian or the New Zealand shelves.
