Spring calls for crisp, refreshing white wines and light-to-medium body reds. This week we have two sauvignon blancs of different styles: a mineral-driven example from the Loire Valley in France and a riper, more effusive expression of the grape from New Zealand. We cap the week’s list with a spicy, medium-bodied red from Sardinia.
GREAT VALUE: Jacques Dumont Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is from vineyards around Sancerre, resembling its more illustrious neighbor. It is stony and shows an assertive herbal character around a citrusy core. Delicious on its own, the wine pairs beautifully with fresh goat cheese or seafood dishes. Alcohol by volume: 11.5 percent. Bottle weight: 417 grams (Light).
