WHAT: Jolie Terre Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2007 (white) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Comté Tolosan, France
WHY: Screw caps? Plastic bottles? Grape name on the label? Can you hear the sound of French wine traditionalists' heads exploding? For the rest of us, here's another option from Freixinet-owned Yvon Mau. Ripe and accessible but with correct, crisp Sauvie-B. edge. Nice balancing act. Pair it with white and green food.
PRICE: 750 ml/$12.95
AVAILABILITY: At most liquor stores (product #90522)
