This is a delicious wine. Buoyant zing, spring leaves. I love it when a sharp, acidic gob-flasher like this is backed up by that bready wholeness that rounds it out and gives it depth.
A flasher who reads Zola novels and plays the bassoon.
Almost criminally drinkable, it’s lovely, balanced, fresh. A long-lasting tongue-tingler. And it comes in a half-bottle, alright?
Again, here’s what Sauvignon Blanc can do, kids. (And when I say ‘kids’, obviously I mean ‘over-18-year-olds’.) Sauvignon Blancs can be exquisitely balanced — fresh, immediate, springy — yet non-cloying.
Region Pouilly Fume, Loire
Grape Sauvignon Blanc
Price £7.50 for a half bottle from The Wine Society

Sounds good. You should give http://www.bbr.com/shopping/list?product_set_id_F=491&product_type_F=W¤cy_code_F=GBP®ion_code_F=2182 a punt too; delicious stuff.
Thanks, Graeme — maybe I’ll snaffle a bottle of it to celebrate my arrival in That London …
I love SB but they are sometimes too rich. This one sounds like it might be a little fresher/crisper.
oh and “Enjoyed this post? Why the heck don’t you subscribe, then, you apathetic fucker?”
Very nice, made me laugh. I subscribed to you awhile ago but I must have missed that. (How could I?)
Absolutely agree, Alyssa — SBs can definitely be a bit full-on.
As for the subscribe prompt, I’m all about the small details. The small, offensive details.
