L’Escalier au Ciel Sauvignon Blanc 2012

This is a very moreish and refreshing sauvignon blanc from south western France.  The wine comes from the appellation of IGP Atlantique, where the IGP stands for Indication Géographique Protégée, which is the new EU/French term for the regions once labelled Vin de Pays.  In the glass, this wine has a lovely balance to it.  Its aromatics remind of spiced apples, lemon and almond meal, while the palate is fresh and leaves a lingering impression of lemon, apple and almond, with a very small touch of grass.  I frankly really quite enjoyed this wine (with crumbed chicken it seemed particularly well matched), and I’d recommend this ahead of most for the price.

Rating: Good, Abv: 12%, Price: $20.50, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.bordeauxandbeyond.com, Website: n/a, Tasted: 2014
