This week Mary and I review two really nice Spring whites from France neither of which will cost you an arm or a leg!
Our first wine was the 2009 Domaine Vincent Dampt Chablis. If you are tired of California big butt Chardonnays this is the wine for you. Here the noble grape is doing its classique Burgundian thing…at $22 a bottle…worth it! Don’t let California marketers from long ago spoil the word Chablis…In France it stands for great white wines.
Our second wine was the 2010 Thierry Delaunay Sauvignon Blanc vin de pays from Touraine. If you’re in Touraine you are most probably drinking Sauvignon Blanc and this is no exception. At $12 a bottle it won’t change your life but it will improve your dinner, lunch or just plain old nothing. Look for the letters TYDY on the bottle. Check out our review by clicking below!
