Balland Coteaux du Giennois Blanc Les Beaux Jours
This tiny 6.5 hectare domaine in the Loire was started by Emile Balland in 1999. The Ballands have been making wines in the Loire since 1650 and his father was instrumental in achieving recognition for the young AOC Coteaux du Giennois in the 1980s. The Beaux Jours Blanc is produced from vineyards on the slopes of the Loire River at Bonny and Beaulieu.
From a relatively unknown appellation within the Loire, this is delicious Sauvignon Blanc that is fermented on its lees to give complexity to the classic Loire fruits.
Classic Loire fruit on the nose, notes of gooseberry, fleshy melon, pear and citrus. The palate is light and clean with a real citrus, lime zest raciness to it. Behind this comes grassy, vegetal notes and a chalky minerality. The wine is fermented on its lees and on the finish that touch of richness and complexity comes to the fore.
