Today’s Wine Review


Even though there are technically twenty-one days until the first day of summer, it feels like spring has abandoned us for the muggy days of summer. I just got back from walking the dogs and am soaked through. So I thought today would be a perfect day to drink some chilled soft white wine and chill out.

We had a very nice French White Bordeaux 2012 from Chateau La Castillonne. It was a Sauvignon Blanc, very light and dry but soft and tasted like pears. It was a wine that we had tasted at a French wine tasting a couple of months ago and bought a few bottles. It was very affordable at <$13 a bottle. It went very well with the grilled pork chops and salad.

Another nice white wine that we like to keep on hand is a California wine from Joel Gott. We have tasted quite a few different Joel Gott wines, red and white and so far we have not been disappointed in any of the bottles we’ve had. Their Sauvignon Blanc is almost clear in the glass. The wine is everything a Sauvignon Blanc is supposed to be; dry with a mineral taste, clean and crisp with a tart finish. I usually don’t pay more than $13 a bottle for it and sometimes catch it on sale for $11. It goes very well with grilled chicken or grilled pork.

So if you’re looking for something light and clean you can’t go wrong with either one of these wines.
