Un article très sympathique du blog de Booth à propos du Cuvée Première que vous pouviez vous procurer en promotion dans leur magasins au Royaume-Uni jusqu'à la semaine dernière. Mais d'abord qui est Booth :

Now to the point, a partner for this wonderful cheese – we’ve got a real bargain on at the moment Berticot Cuvée Première Sauvignon Blanc (£6.49 half price from £12.99, until 08/02/12). A delicious white from the Côtes de Duras, a smallish but perfectly formed area east of Bordeaux in France. Berticot are quality minded co-op that began in 1937 and now involves120 winemakers who produce their wine from 1,000 hectares. For the “Cuvée Première” they only use the best Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the choicest vineyards, giving a nice crisp white very similar in style to Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé from up the coast in Loire. It’s a cracking drop and we’re lucky to have it, as it’s particularly popular on the French restaurant scene (ssshhh don’t tell them).
Berticot produce the wine low temperatures and by soaking the grape skins for a short time with juice to impart elegant aromas, a good structure and zingy flavours – loads of lime zest, blossom and a lovely crunchy green apple edge. As well as tangy cheese and a bit of fresh bread – a triumvirate of flavours… yuummm… this wine will be great with seafood and lightly flavoured fish dishes. Don’t just take my word for it; the wine has won quite a few awards and admirers:Concours Mondial Sauvignon – Gold Medal.Decanter World Wine Awards – Bronze Medal.
         I hope you’ve enjoyed this jaunt, there are so many different topics to cover if there’s anything in particular please let me know and of course if you try the wine or cheese your feedback will be most welcome!
