Here’s a rather flattering review of out Michel Gassier Sauvignon 2011 from an excerpt of The Montreal Gazette’s Wines of the Week from August 9, 2012
It is rare that a wine’s quality does not reflect its price. However, there are exceptions. The wines of the week are reserved for those wines that show exceptional quality and outstanding value.
This week’s suggestions: easy-drinking whites under $20
I received an email in which the reader was saying that while she was able to find some good-value red wines under $20, finding good white wines was difficult. My rule of thumb has always been that you have to pay $5 to $10 more for a white than you usually pay for a red. That’s usually. Here are five wines I recently tasted that more than make the grade:
Vin de France 2011, Sauvignon Blanc, Les Piliers, Michel Gassier, France white, $14.95, SAQ #11770140. Sauvignon blanc for those of you who normally find the grape too acidic. Riper melon and peach as opposed to pure citrus. Very easy drinking. Serve at 6C. Drink now. Food-pairing idea: apéritif, trout and other lighter fish.
