This outstanding wine would go well with shellfish and sushi.

Pascal Jolivet Sancerre 2008
$38 Sancerre is the best and the classic region for Sauvignon Blanc. I prefer French Sauvignon Blanc over New Zealand, because French ones tend to be more subdued, complex, and gentle. This wine is a good example of Sancerre. It has an intense and complex aroma of citrus, grapefruit, stone fruit, lime, and herbs. On the palate, medium+ acidity, dry, medium- bodied, crunchy apple note, creamy, mineral, and medium+ length (a little tart).
