Travel writer Rick Steves calls the Languedoc France’s “hidden corner.” It may be obscure to tourists, but for wine lovers, this is France’s “New World” – a treasure trove of rich-fruited, ancient-vine wines with prices that are giving more famous regions a run for their money.
From Didier Brenac’s historic family estate in the Languedoc (established by Louis Brenac in 1932), this charming Sauvignon Blanc is a shining example of why southern France is a go-to spot for savvy wine lovers seeking rich flavors and incredible value. More than 300 days of brilliant sun each year (plus, cooling breezes wafting in from the nearby Mediterranean Sea) help the Brenac’s vines produce perfectly ripe grapes with major aroma and flavor impact – chilly night harvesting locks in all those mouthwatering qualities.
An ideal match for salads and grilled white fish, this Sauvignon Blanc is seriously good for the price (which means it isn’t going to last in our cellars for long) and overflowing with crisp citrus, apple, pear, and exotic fruit flavors. Prompt orders recommended!
