Joseph Mellot Destinea Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc, 2015

This wine is less than half the price of Joseph Mellot's Sancerre; yet it satisfies me with its clean, clear Sauvignon Blanc qualities. I guess I haven't tasted enough Sancerre and Pouilly Fume to appreciate what those terroirs have to offer.

Very light and clear. Fresh mint and melon. Very refreshing matched against green vegetable dishes such as spinach pasta. Good fruit, good acidity. Has everything I want for this context.
