The 2014 Barton & Guestier Sancerre has 13% alcohol, cost under $20, and scored 15+ Dionysian points. The Sauvignon Blanc shows white grapefruit with herbal side notes. It had good acidity to deal with the food.

Ideal with shellfish, we used it with halibut and it highlighted the fish. It’s a nice food wine.

B & G wines are always good buys and you get nice flavors for lower prices. They’ve been selling wines since 1725 and know just about everyone. I use them for large event meals. They’re ready to open when you buy them, but I like to hold them for five years to add complexity. In Vino Veritas.
