What We're Drinking Now

February 6

CHÂTEAU DE POCÉ TOURAINE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2011 VINTAGES 313569  $13.95

This Loire Sauvignon Blanc from Domaine Chainier displays gooseberry, fresh cut grass and citrus on the nose and palate.  A lovely mineralilty shines through on the palate.  Everything is restrained in this wine, a welcome change of pace from some of its New Zealand counterparts.  I'm 87 points on this wine, a lovely sipper with shellfish.    -Andy
