Vincent Ricard "Les Trois Chênes" Sauvignon Blanc Touraine 2017
Sauvignon Blanc from Vincent Ricard's best and oldest parcel, near the top of a south-facing slope with plantings dating as far back as 1947. Fermented and aged all in barrel for the oxidative qualities it gives to the wine. This approach, along with the ripe, robust fruit, gives the wine more body and viscosity, with strong peach and mandarin orange notes. It's still a very balanced wine, not too much barrel influence or weight, with considerable freshness. Overall very pleasurable and satisfying with a lot of depth. Vincent is meticulous about his pruning, vineyard work, and skilled at planting cover crops. [Jonathan Kemp]
