Nothing expresses the feeling of spring better than a big glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Especially the tart French edition. It doesnâ€™t say so on the label, but Lurtonâ€™s wine has the lean, clean invigorating character of Sauvignon from the Loire. Very pure, very real. But strictly a refresher, or aperitif wine. Two glasses max, and pop it back in the fridge. Will be heavenly in the dog days of summer.
P.S. The name here is a play on Pouilly Fume, the high-end Sauvignon from the Loire.
