Back Up The Truck: Loire Edition
2022 Sables Verts Saumur-Champigny Glouglou

Posted by Joe Salamone

Sables Verts' Glouglou was an instant favorite.

We discovered Sables Verts earlier this year and they became a go-to for honest and very fairly priced Loire wine.

Their Glouglou bottling is the wine that opens the most doors. It is outright delicious. While its appeal is undeniable, it would be a mistake to overlook how well composed and fascinating the wine is.

At $18.95 in 6-packs, the 2022 Glouglou offers not to be missed value.

The Glouglou is sourced from Les Dares, Bonneveaux, Perruchers, and Le Bourg. You may recognize the Le Bourg vineyard. This is the site that Clos Rougeard put on the world stage.

The result is a wine of irresistible vibrancy and beautiful expressiveness. There are spice and floral notes along with a mineral spine. It has a gorgeous texture and lovely freshness.

Domaine des Sables Verts' first vintage was 2019 and was founded by the husband and wife team of Caroline Meurée and Hervé Maligne, who met while working in Bordeaux. The domaine is named after the green sands that are a component of the limestone soils of the region and are thought to give the wines a distinctive intensity and freshness.

We strongly encourage 6-pack purchases. A wine this versatile and this compelling at this price point is a rare thing.
