Initio – Sauvignon Blanc 2016 – Vin de France

The nose is fruity and offers a fleshy / juicy fruit as well as a small freshness. It reveals notes of ripe lemon, ripe grapefruit and small notes of juicy vine peach associated with fine touches of zest. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers an acidulous frame, a small suavity, tension, freshness, a good roundness, gourmandise as well as fat (work on lees). On the palate this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, ripe / juicy yuzu and small notes of ripe / juicy grapefruit combined with touches of crushed brugnon, crushed pear as well as fine hints of zests (in the background), a very discreet hint of butter and an imperceptible hint of white flowers (in the background). A fruit focused wine.
