White wine. Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "The 2017 Sassayen Blanc from Luc Percher is composed entirely of sauvignon blanc. It is fermented with indigenous yeasts and spends five months of its elevage on its fine lees. The 2017 is fairly ripe, coming in at fourteen percent octane and offering up a very bright and pretty nose of pineapple, lemon, a fine base of soil, a gentle touch of grassiness and a topnote of citrus peel. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and quite plush at the core, with fine focus and grip, sound acids and a long, wide open and complex finish. This is a good example of a riper sauvignon blanc, with plenty of personality, but which probably will be best drunk over the next few years. 2020-2023." — 88 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
