Sauvignon Blanc with distinction and grace. Thésée is a village across the Cher River from the village of Pouillé, where Laurent Saillard has his vineyard. Thésée has particulary white limestone. It looks like pure chalk. You can see the old cellars that are carved directly into the exposed limestone. Sauvignon Blanc vines grown on limestone has a particular taste, often requiring long elevage to show its best. This Sauvignon spends about ten months in neutral 500 litre demimuids, followed by another year or so in bottles prior to release. To my palate, the above POB Sauvignon Blanc is more sappy and Thésée is a little more elegant.
