Region - Touraine, Loire Valley
Grapes - Sauvignon, Chardonnay
Lucky You! is a blend of Sauvignon and Chardonnay all from the Clos Roche Blanche vineyard. Though for some people it is a contentious issue of Sauvignon or Chardonnay, in this part of the Loire this blend is actually quite typical historically. The Sauvignon gives fruit and an edge, the Chardonnay minerality and structure. In an increasingly hot climate the grapes are ripening faster with less acidity, so Laurent looks for a bitterness to give backbone in the wine. A wine of immense drinkability, with wonderful texture and fruit.
