Château Tour Perey L'Audace Sauvignon Blanc 2016
At Tour Perey we get a little surprise. A 100% Sauvignon Blanc, vines over 60 years old and 100% aged in new barriques - as far as the facts are concerned. Anyone who suspects expressive wood notes is absolutely wrong. The nose is a dream. Incredibly intense fruit of gooseberries and grapefruit, with diverse floral notes. And everything is so incredibly fresh, the wood hardly noticeable. The intensity almost knocks you out. The spectrum ranges from the Loire to overseas. The wood is hardly present in the mouth either, just wonderfully subtle structure. Elegance and lightness dominate here. A force of freshness with a sustained vibrating energy. The fruit flavors on the palate come from the apricot and lychee, the perfect, pleasant and fine acidity is characterized by grapefruit. Wow, we would not have expected a Sauvignon Blanc at this level. Phenomenally brilliant and absolutely rare. Only 600 bottles were produced and we are so happy and proud to be able to get something from them.
