Cheval Imperial Sauvignon Blanc: A Refreshing Escape from Languedoc

Uncorking a bottle of Cheval Imperial Sauvignon Blanc is like taking a trip to the sunny vineyards of Languedoc in southern France. Produced by Foncalieu, a renowned cooperative winery in the region, this delightful white wine offers a taste of the Mediterranean, perfect for enjoying on its own or paired with a delicious meal.

Tasting Notes:

Cheval Imperial Sauvignon Blanc pours a beautiful pale yellow colour with light green glints. As you swirl the wine in your glass, inviting aromas emerge. Delicate floral notes of white blossom mingle with fresh, zesty citrus fruits like grapefruit and lime. Hints of gooseberry and tropical fruits like passion fruit add a touch of complexity.

The first sip is an explosion of freshness. The wine boasts a lively acidity that dances on the palate, balanced by the subtle sweetness of ripe fruit. The flavours echo the aromas, with gooseberry and citrus taking centre stage, complemented by a touch of minerality. The finish is clean and crisp, leaving you wanting more.

Food Pairing:

Cheval Imperial Sauvignon Blanc's versatility makes it a fantastic choice for a variety of dishes. Its refreshing acidity cuts through rich foods and complements lighter fare perfectly. Here are some suggested food pairings to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Seafood:  The bright acidity of this Sauvignon Blanc makes it a natural partner for all things from the sea.  Pair it with grilled fish, shellfish like oysters or mussels, or a classic fish and chips.
  • Salads: Salads bursting with fresh summer vegetables or a creamy goat cheese salad find a perfect match in Cheval Imperial's crispness.
  • Goat Cheese:  The tangy flavours of goat cheese pair beautifully with the wine's acidity. Try a goat cheese tart or a goat cheese salad with a drizzle of honey.
  • Chicken: Grilled or roasted chicken takes on a new dimension when paired with this Sauvignon Blanc. The wine's acidity cuts through the richness of the chicken, while the fruit flavours complement the savoury notes.
  • Asian Cuisine:  For a taste of adventure, try Cheval Imperial with Thai curries, Vietnamese spring rolls, or any dish with a touch of spice. The wine's acidity balances the heat of the spices, creating a harmonious flavour profile.

With its sunny disposition and refreshing flavours, it's a perfect wine for enjoying on a warm summer evening, perhaps on a patio or balcony. It's also a fantastic choice for a casual get-together with friends or a light lunch on a sunny day.
