Our Saumur Blanc goes perfectly with first courses, shellfish and fish. The ideal serving temperature between 52 and 56°
"Julien Fouet's 2009 Saumur behaves rather like a blend of Sauvignon and Chenin, smelling mouth-wateringly of ripe honeydew melon, apple, lime, mint, and brown spices Like a luscious melon and lime sorbet (except, of course, dry) it coats and refreshes the palate, with salt, iodine, and apple pip bitterness offering counterpoint. This finishes with a persistently mouth-watering interplay of fruit and mineral as well as a delightful overall sense of levity. It may be that, just as many Sauvignons from outlying areas of Touraine benefited especially from the ripeness of 2009 when compared with wines from better-known appellations that sometimes took on too much weight or alcohol and lacked brightness, so this delightful Saumur exhibits ravishingly ripe appeal yet also lift, brightness, and transparency to mineral nuance that are generally missing from 2009 vintage Chenin Blancs of more celebrated appellations. In view of the short plastic stopper used to seal the bottle, I would plan to savor this versatile, outstanding value over the coming 6-9 months. "
