Wine of the Week – Domaine des Corbillieres Touraine 2010
Touraine is located in the Loire Valley of France just down the road from Sancerre. Sancerre produces some of the most amazing Sauvignon Blanc on the planet. Touraine (from the right producer) produces some of the most amazing Sauvignon Blanc for about half the price! The Barbou family of Domaine des Corbillieres has been producing wine since the 20’s and is one of the best producers in the region.
Lemon, lime, pink grapefruit up front give way to hints of fresh herbs and salinity, before leaving with a blast of mouthwatering acidity. Only four cases of this one available then we’ll have to wait for next year, try not to miss it! Year in and year out this is one of our favorite Sauvignons. (An even smaller amount of their Pinot Noir Rose is available as well – shhh don’t tell anyone).
