Domaine des Grosses Pierres Sancerre, Loire Valley 2013 $23 Value: good

The bouquet shows pronounced struck-flinty mineral notes with a hint of citrus: it’s as far away from the grassy herbaceous style of sauvignon blanc as it could be. Delicate, lean and very dry in the mouth, with crisp acidity. An excellent seafood white. Now to three years. 12.5 per cent alcohol. 89/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: fish and chips
