Les Vignerons Ardechois • Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Ugni Blanc • 13% vol • 89 points GS Score
This superb white from the Ardeche is one of the best value wines we can remember.
A stunning and delicious wine which has been elevated to feature as a staple with the lunch menu here at Gauthier Soho, standing shoulder to shoulder with Rhone valley whites at twice the price.
"Pretty white blossom and lemon zest abound in this sprightly dry blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc and Ugni Blanc. While moderate in concentration, savory hints of oyster shell, smoke and pollen lend complexity." - Wine Enthusiast
From the supplier: "Les Vignerons Ardéchois stands as a great ambassador for the central western part of the Rhone valley, comprising the beautiful mountainous region of the Cévennes. This is a region where the turmoil of French history and the natural hard tough conditions have combined to inspire courageous wine growers who are as proud of their “terroirs” as we are of this selection. This southwestern natural boundary (Massif Central) of the Ardèche is a land where you can admire not only the numerous vineyards but also extensive olive groves and forests of indigenous chestnut trees. “Fonvene” is a fusion of two French words “Fontvive”, an emerald water spring and the name of the region south of the Ardèche, the Cévennes."
