I would like to introduce the wines of Mr Midoir, our man in the Loire. Raphaël is the fifth generation winemaker of this Domaine based in the small town of Cheméry. With 20ha of white grapes plotted around the Loire Valley, it is Sauvignon Blanc which takes centre stage at this up and coming Domaine.
Although Sauvignon Blanc would no longer come out top in the “wine popularity poles”, there is no reason to send it out the pasture; it is even worth a revisit in our opinion, especially when originating from the Loire. As an aperitif or with fresh shellfish, this light, low alcohol, zesty, herbaceous, citrus driven grape is a real crowd-pleaser at all price points. This is “proper wine” which is there to be enjoyed with friends.
We import three classic Sauvignon Blancs from this estate, all of which provide great value drinking and typicity, ideal for those sunny days in the garden to come. The Pouilly-Fumé would be our pick of the trio.
