Belles Vignes Sauvignon Blanc, 2018

This wine is a simple Vin de Pays from the Loire, but it has a lot to recommend it. And it can be purchased for only $4.49 a bottle right now at Trader Joe's in Kalamazoo.

Very light color. Still very young, but this is not a wine to put away. Peppery, spicy aromas--cilantro, jalapenos. Also some gooseberry and green fruits. Not as sweet as most New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs. In fact, it may be too dry and puckery for some drinkers. I like this style of Sauvignon and will go back for more.
