Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme Touraine Sauvignon 2015


Recommendation: A noteworthy Loire Sauvignon Blanc that’s a GREAT value.

Winery/Producer: Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme; Les Montils, France.

Grape Variety: Sauvignon blanc.

Geographic Region, Appellation: Touraine, Loire Valley, France.

Vintage: 2015

Price: $15.30 with a 10% mixed case discount.

Purchased From: The Caviste Wine Shop; Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Paired With: Chicken and vegetables roasted in a clay pot with garlic, rosemary, thyme and parsley. Caesar style salad with garlic, lemon juice, olive oil dressing.

Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, light oat straw color. Quite heavy “Autumn Sunset” rose and apple aromas. Light, fresh and silky smooth mouth-feel with lots of acidity and rich, tart tropical fruit and apple cider taste. A finish that carries on the fruit flavors and adds bitterness as it ends. A PERFECT finally to our red vermouth aperitif and a FANTASTIC pairing with the roasted chicken. The fragrant bouquet and perfect juxtaposition between honey sweet and Granny Smith tart make this a UNIQUE wine that’s way under valued. Two thumbs up from me and a noteworthy Loire Sauvignon Blanc that’s a great value.

    She said: Clear, golden yellow color. Very pleasant sweet floral aroma that bursts into even stronger flavors. The wine was smooth, had a medium body and almost creamy mouth-feel. The finish was long and full of flavor. It went very well with the dinner and was outstanding with the overly garlic salad. A bargain wine and I look forward to more of it.
