French Whites

France makes more great wine and in greater variety than any other country in the World. It also defines, classifies and and controls them in more detail and has a longer history of doing so than anywhere else. This is as true of white wine as red. The white wines in particular of Burgundy, Bordeaux, the Loire and the Rhone are outstanding.

    If Sauvignon Blanc rather than Chardonnay is your thing, I’d respectfully suggest that you look no further than the 2017 Domaine de l’Ermitage, Menetou-Salon. Menetou-Salon, just north of Bourges in the Loire Valley, is where canny folk who quail at the prices now asked for top quality Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé now head for their vino, and quite right too. I reckon this is as good as anything you would find elsewhere in the Loire. The de la Farge family have been making wine here at the Domaine de l’Ermitage estate for 500 years, so one imagines they know what they’re up to. Only the finest hand-harvested Sauvignon Blanc is used and the result is an impressively sophisticated glass of wine. It’s clean and fresh, with the expected notes of nettles and grass, but there’s ripe stone fruit too and even something bordering on the tropical. The 2015 vintage won gold at the Decanter World Wine Awards and I reckon this is every bit as good. £ 14.95 down from £15.95.
