New Zealand Sauvignon is definitely one of the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc…. well after the Loire Sauvignon Blanc obviously 🙂 !
Cloudy Bay is one of the flagships of NZ sauvignon blanc and probably one of the easiest to buy in France as its available at Vinatis, Millesima or Drinks&Co.
There is however a great value alternative, that you will definitely enjoy and will you give the most enjoyment out of this amazing terroir while still easy to order in France.
This alternative is the Rimaperre by Edmond De Rothschild Heritage at only 18 euros a bottle:
Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc 2021 – Épicerie Edmond de Rothschild
Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc 2021 ➤ issu directement de notre domaine. Un savoir-faire artisanal d’exception ✓ Livraison express sous 48h !
There is also a limited edition Rimpapere Plot 101 available at 24 euros and definitely worth a try:
