2018 Ciel Bleu d’Aquitane Sauvignon Blanc

2018 Ciel Bleu d’Aquitane Sauvignon Blanc

Until now, the least expensive Sauvignon Blanc I’ve seen at Costco was the Kirkland Signature Ti Point, for $7.99, which is actually a pretty good buy for what it is.

But here’s a French Sauvignon Blanc that comes in at only $5.99. With summer approaching, I was curious about this one as I love a good Sauvignon Blanc when it’s hot as heck or when you’re poolside.

And it turns out this is the perfect bottle for that occasion. Yes, it’s $6 so you might hesitate but this is a very drinkable, and rather enjoyable bottle of wine at a ridiculously low price.

Fans of Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs like Kim Crawford, Nobilo and Brancott, will like this one. It has similar acidity and plenty of tarty citrus bite but is about half the price of some of these others.

Straw yellow in the glass, fresh nose of citrus fruit; as I said already, plenty of tart and acidity, flavors of pineapple, apricot, and green apple; crisp and refreshing like you expect these bottles to be. For $6, this one over delivers. Rating: 87 points, includes 1 bonus point for extreme value

Costco item number: 1315423

Alc. 11.5%

Purchased 4 bottles June 2019. Got them home. Placed in wine rack on their side. A day later, went to get one and noticed that all 4 bottles were leaking thru the screw caps. Taking them back. What a disappointment. Faulty caps Im thinking.

Sorry to hear that. That’s a bummer and unfortunately it does happen on the rare occasion.
