LWF 2017: Essence of Sauvignon Blanc seminar announced

Jo Gilbert

Loire Valley's 2014 harvest was a long growing season with lower yields, but good quality due to the September sun.

The birthplace of Sauvignon Blanc will be put under the spotlight on the first day of this year’s London Wine Fair.

Central Loire Valley Wines will be hosting a seminar on May 22, which will cast a critical eye over the typical styles of Sauvignon Blanc from the region.

The seminar, which will be led by Sauvignon Blanc expert, wine journalist and author doctor Jamie Goode, will include a tasting of wines from appellations located in the Central Loire Valley including Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Menetou Salon, Quincy, Reuilly and Coteaux du Giennois.

The seminar follows Goode’s recent trip to the Central Loire to discover Sauvignon Blanc’s origins and to delve into the style and essence of the grape variety.

The session is a collaboration with the SICAVAC, a leading research and development centre based in the Loire.

The seminar will be take place on Monday, May 22, at 14.30 in the Pop-Up tasting area.
