The Vignobles Lacheteau Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is a $6.99 Trader Joe’s import exclusive. Vignobles Lacheteteau oversees several Chateaus and Domaines, has 1,270 acres of vines, and is part of the CGF Wine Group.

Touraine is an AOP and a large district in the Loire Valley of France. Chinon is the best-known village inside Touraine. Sauvignon Blanc wine can be found throughout the Loire Valley with Sancerre being the village with the most renown. If you thought Sauvignon Blanc was a New Zealand grape, it is originally from France.

This $6.99 wine is an AOP-designated wine which is the highest-tier, which indicates that the vineyards and the winery adhered to the top standards.

The Vignobles Lacheteau Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2023 as a 2023 vintage does not have much aging. It was probably fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, these value-priced Sauvignon Blancs rarely see oak conditioning.

Little to no aging is fine for these Loire Valley White wines because they can be bright and juicy (with balance) and a joy to sip. The alcohol content is a mild 11.5%.

The Vignobles Lacheteau Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2023 Tasting Notes

This Touraine Sauvignon Blanc tastes like ripe apple, pineapple, grapefruit, peach, soft spice, and lime. The mid-palate adds pear, melon, stone fruit, white peach, and a slap of tart citrus. This is a wine with balanced flavors.
