Carolyn Evans Hammond, a Toronto-based wine writer and a contributing columnist for the Star, chronicled the Sauvignon Blanc 2019 and gave it the great score of
“Sauvignon Blanc lovers often look to New Zealand, Chile, and the Loire Valley in France, all of which make that wine well. But an easy-to-find alternative that’s charming and inexpensive is the 2019 “Les Jamelles” Sauvignon Blanc from the South of France (LCBO 465146 £14.95).
This French white exudes classic scents of freshly sliced lemons and damp herbs before racing over the palate with lively lemon-lime nuanced with white flowers and orange zest. Dry, well-balanced, and well-priced, the 2019 “Les Jamelles” Sauvignon Blanc is the type of wine I like to pour into a clay pitcher and serve with a big green salad topped with grilled fish, fresh cheese or roasted chicken, alongside a country loaf and some good butter. Score: 92). “ Carolyn Evans Hammond
