Clos de la Grange Touraine Sauvignon 2013: lohud Wine of the Week | Mixed Case 10 Bottle 12


TJN 0827 mixed caseClos de la Grange Touraine Sauvignon 2013: Fresh citrus, stone fruits, and flinty chalk on the nose, followed by bright acidity, mineral undertones, a rich soft texture, and ends in a long, lingering and refreshing finish. Price: $13.99. Region: Touraine, Loire Valley, France. Goes with: As an apéritif, with seafood, fresh salads, and goat cheese. Why we chose it: With the prices of many Sancerres and Pouilly Fumes continuing to climb, we love it when we can find a wine that can compete with Sancerre at half the price. This is a crisp and refreshing white that really took us by surprise by being multidimensional, and absolutely delicious.

This is Bottle No. 12, our last bottle, in our 10th series.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Tracy Maxon and J.J.
