Sauvignon de Touraine, Domaine Bellevue 2021
The new vintage of Domaine Bellevue’s hugely popular Sauvignon de Touraine is here, and it's better than ever. Still just £10.95, the 2021 vintage surely must be the best value white around.
I seem to have found myself drinking much more white recently than red. I must admit that even when it's grey and blowy outside then a bright shimmering white can soon add a touch of brightness to the day and Bellevue has long been my go to everyday drop of sunshine.
Heralding from the majestic Loire valley region, home to many of France’s grandest and most spectacular castles and châteaux. The vineyards of Bellevue are near neighbours to one of the most prestigious, Château de Chenonceau, and their wines would certainly not felt out of place gracing even their most noble residents table.
Who wouldn’t love to have a chilled Sancerre at their wedding or a minerally dry Pouilly-Fumé at their birthday drinks, but sometimes these may possibly stretch the budget a little too far, so let me tell you about the new 2021 vintage of Sauvignon de Touraine from Domaine Bellevue. Packing in arguably even more flavour than many famous villages, this is the perfect choice for any occasion, and you can enjoy a bottle with as many friends as you want without breaking the bank.

What do the critics say?
Reviews of the previous vintage
"Terrific Touraine Sauvignon, all smoky, minerally, greengage fruit and glorious greenery-yallery peashoot pizzazz that makes it the sort of summery thirst-quencher everyone needs in their wine rack, at an infinitely more appetising price than Sancerre."
Jane MacQuitty, The Times
"Sauvignon de Touraine, Domaine Bellevue, a lemon-fresh, really rather tropical Sauvignon Blanc produced but a stone's throw from the dreamiest of all Loire Valley châteaux: Chenonceau. Patrick Vauvy is the fourth generation of his family to make wine in Noyers-sur-Cher and his wines are noted for their elegance and exuberance."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator
