2010 Loire Sauvignon Blanc Ambassadors: Domaine de Cray

2010 Sauvignon Blanc Domaine de Cray

Now back to tasting through the selection of 2010 Loire Sauvignon Blanc Ambassadors. Yesterday it was the Domaine de Cray 2010 Touraine Sauvignon. The estate belongs to the Antier family who also have substantial holdings in Montlouis. Sadly at least some of their vineyards suffer from 100% weedkiller treatment.

This 2010 is fresh, lemony with quite marked acidity. Tonique! Drink as an aperitif or with shellfish.
