Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadlle, then you know why. The 2019 has just arrived, and it’s as fresh and as delicious as you could want. Enjoy.

While most New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs give you the killer tropical aromatics and flavors, they tend to be pretty one dimensional. But for New Zealand’s hottest winery of the last decade– the rich, complex, full-bodied expression of Sauvignon Blanc cut off Te Muna Road is elegant, crisp and refreshing – much more akin to village Sancerre than their Kiwi brethren. 92 Points and a Smart Buy from the always stingy Wine Spectator. 92 more points courtesy of Vinous and their new Master of Wine reviewer, Rebecca Gibb.
An absolute gem of a wine from what most consider to be the single greatest single vineyard in Sancerre. At an elevation in Bue much higher than most, the natural acidity and concentration is remarkable here and the vibrancy just explodes from the bottle. Take that and combine it with what has been referred to as “vintage of a lifetime” in the Loire in 2019 and one of the world’s greatest white wine makers in Domonique Roger, and you have a recipe for one of the best white bottles produced in France from the 2019 vintage.

A textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué year in year out, this is the first year that the wine has ever been reviewed and of course they had to give it a big score. Now, our little secret isn’t such a little secret anymore. Drawn off the highest in elevation in Sancerre with the most calcareous soil, it is a chiseled, tightly wound and incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, which I’d argue is one of the best in the world and certainly from one of the best and most consistent winemakers in the Loire Valley.
The 2019 Frenzy Malborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous value white wine, loaded with green apples, pears and white peaches plus a hint of spice. It’s juicy and fresh, the perfect cocktail hour white. It’s what is referred to as the perfect ‘pool wine’. It’s great paired with just about anything or just enjoyed on its own.

This one just dazzles out of the gates with a ton of energy. It has a great nose, packed with inviting aromas of grapefruit, lemon meringue, and toasted hazelnuts. On the mouth, crisp, mineral-packed flavor, juicy apricot and melon notes and that wonderful vibrant acidity on the finish that leaves you begging for another sip.
The secret to the Stolpman wine’s freshness and balance is the fact that they do not irrigate. Sure, it stresses the vines but it forces the roots to go really deep, tapping into the groundwater that is seriously affected by the limestone. The grapes are tiny, packed with flavor and brimming with the stony minerality that only the limestone can bring.
