Tasting Notes

This is a very classic Loire Sauvignon Blanc: minerally and taught with citrus, chalky notes and a hint of under ripe stone fruit. It is medium in body with refreshing acidity and a long finish.

WINE INFORMATION

Foucher-Lebrun is a “Petit Négociant” specializing in wines from the Loire Valley. The company’s mission is to convey as accurately as possible the expression of the appellations in the Loire region by careful selection, vinification and ageing of its wines.  Foucher-Lebrun was founded in 1921 by Paulin Lebrun, a cooper by trade, who developed his company servicing a clientele made up of restaurants and cafés. During the 1950s, his son-in-law, Raymond Foucher, began bottling the company's wines and in 1985 handed over the management to his son, Jacky Foucher.

In late 2009, the company decided to try raise its image as well as develop its business overseas, so they brought on a new partner, Jean Mounard, who runs a fine and rare wine brokerage business in Paris. Mounard is now overseeing the selection process for the wines of the company. He has also begun an activity of producing small quantities of wine from selected plots in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé and Saumur-Champigny (from purchased grapes) and raising them in their cellars outside Pouilly-Fumé. Given his deep experience tasting the great wines of the world as well as his contacts among top producers in the Loire, he has been able to significantly raise the bar in terms of the quality of the wines.

Made from organically farmed vineyards on the edge of the Touraine territory; it is fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.
