Yapp offers the example of Patricia Teiller from the lesser-known Menetou-Salon appellation to the west of Sancerre and Pouilly. She completed her wine studies in Beaune, then went to work in New-Zealand. When she returned home after her father’s Loire domain, she began to make wines with a crisp, fruit-driven – even tropical – style. « They’d contribute a fascinating element to a Sauvignon blind tasting, » Yapp notes. In other words, in style they might be taken for any New-Zealand Sauvignon.
