This is a very pleasant sauvignon blanc from Domaine Mollet-Maudry in Sancerre in the Loire Valley. A yellow gold in colour, it opens to aromas of grass, herbs and minerals. The palate has high acidity, a medium to full body and is racy, but not austere in bearing. This wine is ready to drink now, but can be drunk over the next couple of years. Rating: Good. Abv: 12.5%. Price: $20s.
