The selection includes the following: Sauvignon Blanc, Haut-Poitou, Sauvion Situated just north of Poitiers, the region of Haut-Poitou is some 30 miles south of the River Loire. Sauvignon Blanc ripens well here on limestone, clay and flint soils, particularly on the south facing valley slopes. Zippy and zesty, it has a generous, pungent gooseberry and herbaceous character followed by a fresh finish. Bouchard Aîné & Fils Chardonnay, Vin de France Southern French Chardonnay, produced by a Burgundy house that fundamentally understands the grape. The wine is cool-fermented and aged in vats; it shows white flower aromas, such as acacia, alongside notes of honey and vanilla. Son Excellence Sauvignon Blanc, Côtes de Gascogne Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown in vineyards influenced by the cooling effects of the Atlantic are used to make this fresh and zesty white, with citrus, blackcurrant leaf and tropical fruit notes. Granfort Sauvignon Blanc, Vin de France An excellent example of this classic grape. Modern vinification techniques have transformed the quality of this wine produced from grapes grown in the south of France. Typical gooseberry aromas and fresh, zingy acidity. La Campagne Viognier, Pays d’Oc This northern Rhône variety is becoming increasingly less rare and is now firmly established in the south of France. As the vines mature, they produce wines with even more of that classic peachy-apricot flavour. Picpoul de Pinet, Réserve Mirou The Picpoul grape has been grown around the sleepy village of Pinet, close to the Mediterranean coast, for centuries. Surprisingly bright and fresh for a wine produced in such a warm clime, it’s rather like a fuller bodied Muscadet with plenty of citrussy fruit.
