Grown on clay and flint stones, 'Lucky You' is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Laurent Saillard’s 45 year old vines. From harvest it’s directly pressed and straight into old wooden vats for fermentation and 5 months of ageing, entirely untouched until bottled. With zero sulphur in the wine, this is as straight-forward and fresh as Sauvignon Blanc gets. Plenty of chamomile, zippy lemon, pineapple and little gardenia flowers.

In the Loire Valley’s tiny town of Pouillé, an hour east of Tours, Laurent’s tiny little winery resides. He is bright-eyed, intelligent and hard-working, a true representative of the Loire Valley’s recent surge into prestigious wine-making lore. The wines are playful, joyous and a must try.
