- Light seafood or young cheeses, particularly chèvre
Touraine lies west of famed Sancerre in the Loire Valley and excels with the same white grape, sauvignon blanc, at typically half the price. This gem is more exuberantly fruity than most Sancerres, with silky lemon and melon flavours leading the charge, but it delivers a strong essence of that prized flinty character for which Sancerre is famous. Try it with light seafood or young cheeses, particularly chèvre.
