Pouilly Fume and Sancerre, made from Sauvignon Blanc, have always been the stars of the Loire, but as their popularity increased so did the price. A nice replacement at a more modest price is this crisp and racy Sauvignon Blanc, (with a little Chardonnay in the blend) from the appelation of Cheverny in the Touraine region. Produced by the Delaille family on their 37 acres since 1930, this incredibly refreshing dry white is the perfect match with any shellfish, grilled fish or chicken. It's also a nice starter with some goat cheese, olives and crusty french bread. The wine is pale straw in the glass with greenish highlights. The aromas are fresh and inviting with an herbaceous overtone and ripe gooseberry fruit edged with citrusy notes. The vivacious style of this wine is reminiscent of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. On the palate the wine has a nice, creamy texture, lively flavor and brisk, mouthwatering acidity. It's hard to put the glass down once you get going.
