Cuvee Fie Gris 2008, Eric Chevalier, Vin de Pays Du Val De Loire, France.

Appearance:Light and clear yellow with a pale rim .

Nose: Pronounced gooseberry , grass and herbaceous aromas. Hints of coconut detected (but not oaky).

Palate/ Flavour: Fresh, crisp and high acidity with plenty of lime & citrus flavours and a touch of green capsicum.

Comments: I would have thought this is a sauvignon blanc (fie gris is a cousin of the varietal) given the similarities in both the aroma and flavour profiles. But it was a steal for the price and it is always refreshing to try something new.

  1. I liked this wine quite a bit…very friendly and easy. An everyday wine especially when it gets hot!
