Lisa's Whites, Summer Love

Perfect End Of Summer Sancerre

Flinty. Tart. Sharp. Qualities you wouldn’t look for in a mate but ones that Lisa gravitates towards in a white wine. As summer winds down and oyster season ramps up, we found a $20 Sancerre with a crisp, tart taste to add to your raw bar. Domaine des Hauts de Maimbray 2014 is bright and lively, with grapefruit or lemon undertones. A classic Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley, the wine is dry without producing cotton mouth; IMG_20170913_171851563tart without prompting a pucker; and drinkable on its own or with shellfish. Lisa once pledged allegiance to Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, NZ, with the wet granite, limestone notes. Sancerre has moved to the top of the heap, offering the citrus profile of NZ wine without the stone aftertaste.
