SAUVIGNON BLANCS & CHENINS

A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT THIS WONDERFUL REGIONAL WINE. ONE OF OUR FAVORITE WINEMAKERS IN ALL OF FRANCE IS ERIC MONTINTIN. ERIC STRUGGLED FOR MANY YEARS TO MAINTAIN HIS VINEYARDS AND JUST COULD NOT COMPETE AGAINST THE FORTUNES OF NATURE. SEVERAL YEARS OF HEAVY HAIL DAMAGED HIS VINES TO A IRRETRIEVABLE LEVEL - HE GAVE UP WINEMAKING IN 2016. WE WILL MISS HIM AND HIS WINES, BUT WE STILL HAVE A FEW POUILLY FUMÉ IN THE 2012 VINTAGE THAT SHOULD BE SNAPPED UP BY SAUVIGNON LOVERS!

WE HAD A DIFFICULT TIME REPLACING ERIC AND HIS WINES, BUT I'M PLEASED TO NOTE THAT "DOMAINE FOURNIER" HAS BEEN A PERFECT FIT, ESPECIALLY SINCE THEIR SANCERRE CAME IN AT NUMBER 48 ON THE WINE SPECTATOR LIST OF 100 BEST WINES OF 2016!
