Grapelive Wine of the Day
By Kerry Winslow
2010 Domaine Adele Rouze Quincy Loire Valley White, France.
This heavenly Sauvignon Blanc is one of the great values of the vintage in my book with bright freshness and chalky mineral essence. The nose has white flowers, orange blossoms and tangy citrus leading to a steely crisp palate that displays pretty lemon/lime, hints of grapefruit and gooseberry with lots of zest and mouth watering acidity. The rocky mineral makes you think of limestone and lifts interest in this fine white from this mostly underrated region of the Loire, while I may even say it rivals some of the best from Sancerre, bravo Quincy and kudos to
Charles Neal for finding this beauty! ($19 Est.)
