Year in, year out the Chateau Turcaud is one of the best white wines for the price in the world. It’s no wonder it has appeared all over Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris for years. We’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1 and if you’ve ever tried this stunning Sauvignon Blanc you know why.
This wine is textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué, 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. In the 2019 vintage, the Carrou has a brilliant pale green color and soaring aromatics of green apples, pear and jasmine.
Etienne Daulny is the latest in a very long line of Daulnys to farm Sauvignon Blanc near the tiny hamlet of Verdigny in the appellation of Sancerre. This is a classic Sancerre, aromatically dynamic, with intense fruit, distinct minerality and blazing acidity. It’s the white wine we drink most often at home.
The 2018 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.
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.
