The Chateau de la Roche Touraine Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is a lovely wine that exemplifies just what the Touraine appellation is capable of achieving.
The aroma is of peaches rather than new world tropical fruit. It is a pale, fragile beauty to look at but is rich on the palate and has a balanced, lingering finish. A lovely drink.
Touraine is one of the four broad wine regions of the Loire Valley. Starting from the west we have Pays Nanatais, Anjour- Saumur, Touraine and Central Loire. Touraine has some very well-known red and white appellation contained within it including Chinon, Bourgueil, Vouvray and the elusive Montlouis.
Despite the fact that this wine only carries the broadest of the appellation credentials it is a worthy wine that begs to be treated with respect.
