Domaine de la Guilloterie, Saumur Blanc, Les Perruches, 2018

We thought the last vintage of this barrel-fermented Saumur Blanc from 50 year old vines was impressive, but the 2018 is a step up. It's aged in egg-shaped tanks, good for the distribution of the fine lees. Lovely scent of honey and spring... Read More
