The Sauvignon Blanc from Marine Dubard displays all of the characteristics we come to expect from top tier Sauvignon Blanc: pure citrus, framed by a distinct saline or flinty minerality. It is a combination that can only come from the magical combination of Sauvignon Blanc grown on limestone, which Marine is fortunate to have in abundance on the rolling hillsides that surround her estate. Always a meticulous farmer, Marine’s commitment to vine health was recently recognized by the French government with HEV (high environmental value) certification. This new certification covers biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategy, management of fertiliser use, and management of water. This recognition only magnified what we already knew about Marine and her fastidious devotion to making a remarkable value Sauvignon Blanc.
