Just when I thought the idea of a “Sancerre value” seemed as chimerical as the notion of a President acting presidential, along comes importer Charles Neal again to prove me wrong. Drinking Sauvignon Blanc like this - at this pre-Inflation Era price? - is revelatory... especially when one learns that grapes from some of the Sancerre's most revered "Cru" vineyards make their way into Etienne Daulny's "normal" cuvée. Nowhere else on earth does wine made from Sauvignon Blanc taste the way it does in Sancerre. Oily guava, white peach, and a jolt of tart, minerally acidity running right through the middle. So, so good.
