Go-To French Whites

Rank Wine Rating Price
1 Pépière Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Quatre (2010)
Comments: Made from Melon de Bourgogne, this white is dry, crisp and refreshing, and always what I pull when I'm having fresh oysters. Light to medium-bodied, with distinctive minerality, an almost briny character, and an enticing, soft mouthfeel.
Previously available for $25.99

2 François Pinon Vouvray Cuvée Tradition (2009)
Comments: Ever so slightly off-dry, this Chenin Blanc is always a favorite. Medium(+) in body, with apricot and subtle honey notes balanced by bright acidity. Pleasant undertones of mineral, too.

3 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Bourgogne Blanc (2009)
Comments: Such a delicious bottle. Medium-bodied, with balanced acidity along with notes of stone fruit and lemon curd. Grapes sourced just outside Puligny-Montrachet.

4 Michel Girard et Fils Sancerre (2010)
Comments: I enjoy this Sancerre every vintage, and I can afford it. Some years are more herbaceous than others, but I always get those fresh grapefruit and light grassy notes with refreshing acidity.
Average price: $27.50 from 1 store

5 Dopff & Irion Riesling Alsace Aoc (2009)
Comments: Concentrated flavors but still lighter in body with a nice, dry finish. Mineral, citrus, lightly floral with apple notes. Very refreshing at Thanksgiving.
