Pouilly-Fumé, Domaine Jean-Pierre Bailly, Loire, France 2017

It's not inverted snobbery that keeps a lot of 'classic' wines off our list, it's simply the fact that too many trade on the label. If you can stick 'Pouilly-Fumé' on the front of your bottle, you might be tempted to cut a few corners, safe in the knowledge that people will still buy the wine, because it has brand recognition. This one, however, tastes as if all the corners were dutifully negotiated. It's really very fine, not a caricature of the grape variety (Sauvignon Blanc), but a calm and composed white wine tasting of frosty green grapes, cut grass and wet chalk. 12.5% alc. Drink now-2019
