Tasting Note

A consistent favourite of ours and one we would be hesitant to replace, this fresh and vibrant Sauvignon from the Languedoc is less restained than those you would find in the Loire but more elegant than their Marlborough counterparts. (Lucy)

The Producer

Les Vignobles Foncalieu

Isabelle Pangaut became involved in the wine sector through barrel-making. The daughter of an oak sawyer, she was initially interested in the wood industry and studied forestry management, but eventually found her true passion lay in winemaking during a tasting with her father, which demonstrated the impact of French oak from different forests on the wine ageing process. Isabelle was inspired to study at the Paris and Montpellier Universities of Agronomy. She went on to explore wine production in different regions. Isabelle’s studies in Montpellier had led her to discover the richness of Languedoc vineyards and, convinced of the region's potential.
