Old fashioned designation of Vin de France…or vin de table if you like; this white Sauvignon is from the Languedoc.
It’s quite drinkable and at the price good value but I can’t help but think there is so much out there in the Loire and Bordeaux first, before we ever get so far to the south where this wine/grape comes from, that would likely show more distinctively interesting characteristics …something like even cheaper-end Touraine or Entre-deux-Mers…fresher, sharper, crisper perhaps than this with its more intense fruit to the fore.
But it was good to try it once except I’ll investigate something else the next time there is a 25% deal on and I want cheap white.
Having said that.....a nice wine for less than £4? Shouldn't complain really
