Sainsbury’s, Coteaux du Giennois Sauvignon Blanc 2020

(2023) There are many appellations of the Loire Valley where Sauvignon Blanc is the most prized grape variety, including the Coteaux du Giennois, not far from Sancerre. Part of the 'Taste the Difference' range, this has a fresh tinge of emerald to the colour, and aromas of white flowers and crisp orchard fruit. There's a suggestion of grassy herbaceousness in the background. In the mouth it's a very pleasing, relatively delicate Sauvignon. The acidity is there OK, but it flows from a sweetly-fruited, easy-drinking mid-palate with a suggestion of candied fruit, through to a pithy grapefruit and lime cordial finish.
