Pretty aromas of peach blossom, pear, lemon curd, stones and custard. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a creamy texture. Fun. Drink or hold.

I loved the 2018 Hubert De Boüard Sauvignon Blanc. It's a juicy, lime and citrusscented effort that has lots of vibrant fruit, some building richness and brioche, bright
acidity, and a clean, juicy, dry finish.
The 2018 Sauvignon shows the richer side of the vintage. Pineapple, yellow flowers,
mint and apricot, along with aging on the lees, brings out notable texture and
intensity. This is a decidedly opulent style of Sauvignon.
Vert de Vin
The nose is fresh, fruity and offers crunchiness. It reveals notes of crunchy/juicy peach, crunchy peat and small notes of fresh quince associated with fine touches of ripe lemon. The palate is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a mineral frame as well as finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe/juicy lemon, ripe/juicy peach and small notes of crunchy/juicy pear associated with small touches of fresh litchee as well as a subtle hint of quenette. Good length.
