DOMAINE HENRY PELLÉ "La Croix au Garde" Sancerre 2014

(Sancerre, Loire Valley, France) $19

This is the Ingrid Bergman of Sancerres—ravishing, polished, and effortlessly elegant. One of the best things about top Sancerre is the captivating tension between acidity and fruit. This Pellé has that, plus absolutely vivid smoky/minerally flavors. Pellé himself was considered one of the legendary masters of the sauvignon blanc grape, and now his family carries on, making wines that are widely admired. I cannot imagine Spring without this.
