Domaine de Petit Roubie - 2017/18
Sauvignon Blanc has become the ‘go to’ variety of choice for many white wine drinkers, who look for fresh and uplifting flavours, that will excite the palate. This excellent example from Olivier Azan delivers all the attractively pungent aromatic notes, followed by zesty, green apple and gooseberry fruit flavours which are lush and rounded. There is a pleasant lemony kick on the finish too. Domaine Petit Roubie lies close to the Mediterranean coast, near Sete and is well known for producing the famous Picpoul de Pinet white wine, amongst numerous other well priced, delicious organic wines. This Sauvignon is a versatile ‘anytime’ type of wine to enjoy with or without food. Perfect as an aperitif, with quiche, fish dishes and lighter vegetarian fare.
