Coteaux du Giennois Blanc les Tuileries 2008

Coteaux du Giennois Blanc les Tuileries 2008

This tastes so different to your normal Chenin Blanc and it should as it is Sauvignon Blanc. There is still a bright core of grapefruit flavoured acidity running through the middle of the wine which is so different to your Australian version of this variety. The other flavours that are wrapped around the acidity include violets, custard apple and a hint of glazed lemon rind which adds an extra degree of richness. Through the mouth, the wine has a degree of creaminess that holds the flavours to your tongue just a little bit longer. The wine is lovingly long on my palate with the whole package being rather seductive.
