Pascal Jolivet 2003 Sancerre ($16.79)
This clear, light straw-color wine shows a greenish-brassy hue in the glass. Classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas blend a characteristic "grassy" quality with appetizing notes of citrus. Crisp flavors offer fresh citric fruit over mouth-watering acidity, with an attractive, cleansing lemon-peel tang in the long, clean finish. US Importer: Frederick Wildman & Sons Ltd., NYC. (Jun 20, 2004)

FOOD MATCH: A fine match with both courses of a simple summer dinner: A Spanish potato-and-egg tortilla and an Italian caprese salad of ripe tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and fresh basil with plenty of olive oil. For a more traditional match, pair it with light seafood and fish.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
