Domaine François Cartier Jancis Robinson Review

Tamlyn Currin from Jancis Robinson reviews Domaine François Cartier in the article "Project Loire – the Sauvignons"


Dom François Cartier Sauvignon Blanc 2019, Touraine 
16.5 Points - 12.5%, Drink 2020 – 2022

Certified Haute Valeur Environnementale. 30-year-old vines on clay limestone. Three to four months on lees. No malo. RS 3 g/l. Alcohol on the label is 12.5%, on the tech sheet 13%.
Pear and hawthorn-blossom aromas. Very sweet fruit in the mouth. Ripe apricots and passion fruit with a stab of lemon-and-lime acidity. Very alive and vibrant – seems to pop in the mouth. Almost a little salty on the finish, along with a suggestion of mountain-stream stones. Moreish and creating the perfect triangle of ripeness, acidity and interest.
