Product information

A lively and romantic Sauvignon Blanc, reflected in the name L'Éclat {meaning vibrancy... joie de vivre!].
The vineyards are situated in Gascogny, where warm sunny days and cool evenings ripen the grapes slowly, producing this classic white wine from South West France. The result is a wonderfully juicy palate with crisp, citrus fruit flavours and subtle notes of elderflower, leading to a dry, refreshing finish. Serve chilled and enjoy with spicy fish dishes, chicken or salads.

History
In south west France (south of Bordeaux), Gascony is the home of foie gras, d'Artagnan and The Three Musketeers; more importantly for Boutinot, it has been the source of our white bistro wines for the past twenty-five years
Regional Information
Boutinot have developed long-standing relationships with growers in the Languedoc-Roussillon. This enables us to source premium quality grapes from selected, low-yielding vineyards. These relatively high altitude vineyards benefit from coastal breezes and are situated near some of the best oyster farms in the world.
Current Vintage

Vinification Details

nasty little french wine

Accepted wine as replacement for one ordered but unavailable. Mistake. Should have sent it back as it is a bit fizzy, a bit acidic and probably OK for stripping paint.

Dreadful !

Promotion price was a big saving on the "normal" price so I bought 6 ! Unfortunately this wine just tastes like a cheap white with no characteristic relating to Sauvignon Blanc. Just wondering now what to do with the remaining 51/2 bottles !
