2017 Domaine Daulny Sancerre
No world wide tour of Sauvignon Blanc would be complete without French Sancerre. And here is one of the best:
Made from 50-year-old sauvignon blanc vines, this Sancerre captures the essence of the grape with floral, mineral and flint aromas as well as grapefruit, white peach flavors. A small percentage was aged in older oak but the fruit from this vineyard is powerful enough to absorb it, giving the wine a bit of texture and body. With bright acidity and fruit, this is a great wine to have with a fish dish cooked with fava beans as well as one where the favas are the main event.
