The Loire's Touraine lies next door to prized and rather pricey Sancerre. Both specialise in Sauvignon Blanc, but at Domaine Jacky Marteau you get a lot more wine for your money. From a super vintage, this is a brilliantly fresh, citrusy white.

Beyond the Label
Very crisp and lemony, herbaceous notes with creamy weight
With the ravishing, fresh Sauvignons made in Touraine, it's surprising that this appellation isn't better known. It's situated next door to the Loire's Central Vineyards which includes renowned Sancerre and Pouily Fumé. Touraine Sauvignons, however, tend to be much better value. Domaine Jacky Marteau is a fourth generation estate founded by Gérard Delaunay, the current owners' maternal great grandfather. Passed down the line, it has been run since 2010 by Rodolphe Marteau and his sister Ludivine. Their vineyards on the left bank of the river Cher are ideal for Sauvignon. Picking at the peak of maturity and cool fermenting in stainless steel vats ensure lovely ripe fruit with super charged freshness. A classic with seafood or goat's cheese.
"Brilliant freshness and bright gooseberry fruit. All you could want in a central Loire Sauvignon"
