2017 Frantz Saumon Sauvignon Blanc
Salmon always swim upstream. And even though it seems like more work at the time, it pays off in the end. The same could be said for their namesake Frantz Saumon, who’s rigorous vineyard work and devotion to minimal intervention winemaking have seen him produce an excellent array of natural wines. It’s a tenuous metaphor for sure but I think it works.
This dry, pure, lightly aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is from the negoce side hustle he runs with his wife Marie Thibault, Un Saumon dans la Loire. It’s low in alcohol and high in drinkability.
