2004 Vin de Pays du Val de Loire, Sauvignon Blanc, Levin
|Grape variety:||Sauvignon Blanc|
|Date tasted:||20 September 2006|
|Price when tasted:||£7.99|
Aromatic with gooseberries and herbs; ripe gooseberry fruit on the palate with zesty lemon and elderflowers notes; good length.
With this vintage from his Loire estate, David Levin dispensed with 'le vin de Levin' pun. Low yields, hand-harvested, fermented in stainless steel and bottled in March, this encapsulates the purity of elderflower aromas and gooseberry fruit; a true benchmark for the Loire, and beyond.
