2012 Touraine Sauvignon, Domaine Gibault

 2012 Touraine Sauvignon, Domaine Gibault
This is a rich Touraine Sauvignon from Domaine Gibault, a well established third-generation domaine in Noyers-sur-Cher run by Pascal and Danielle Gibault. Their 2012 is a rich and ripe example of Sauvignon (13% alc) with concentration and no vegetal tones at all. 

There are some who think you have to drink Touraine Sauvignon as young as possible. Although young Touraine Sauvignon can be fresh and attractive, good examples will age well as this 2012 demonstrates. It is drinking well now and should be good and a number more. This is really a Touraine Sauvignon to drink with food rather than as an apéro, when you might well want something crisper and more vibrant.
