Domaine du Salvard Unique Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Drawn from 20+-year-old vineyards in Cheverny (in the north-eastern Touraine), Emmanuel and Thierry Delaille's 'Unique' Sauvignon is an outstanding Loire Valley example of this grape. From a dry and warm vintage, the 2015 has a little more generosity (than pervious years), and brings with it impressive combination of silky fruit and finishing grip. However, the lodestar of this cuvee is freshness, and this the '15 has in spades. Raised for nine months on lees, its attack is bright-eyed and racy with focused citrus and currant flavours, limpid texture and a bright, persistent close. The Delaille brothers never let you down.
