“Made by a couple who did a winemaking stint in New Zealand, it’s perhaps no surprise that this is an upfront, lush style of Loire Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is exciting and aromatic, with sweet tropical fruit offset by a fresh citrus character. The zingy, limey flavors come with a rounded, creamy mouth feel.” May 2014
: "Golden yellow wine, with green reflections. Powerful, rich nose, with notes of fruits and peach. When shaken, the nose reveals even more of its aromatic power and complexity: a mixture of pears, syrupy fruit, a sign of the great maturity of the grapes. The mouth is crisp and full bodied. The acidity ensures that there is a good balance and the notes of white flowers enhance the fruity aromas on the nose. Lingers well, remains on the palette. A perfect accompaniment for fish, shellfish, white meat, poultry, goats’ cheese…or simply as an aperitif."

This rating at this price makes this Domaine Jean Teiller Menetou-Salon Blanc a must-have for the summer. Crisp and full-bodied at the same time, it's got lovely citrus, tropical fruit and wonderful acidity to balance everything beautifully. Fill your glasses and head onto your patio or terrace. That's all you need. If you're craving a little something, make it a creamy Boursin cheese with either crudite or your favorite simple crackers. The acidity in this Jean Teiller is perfect for a decadent platter of homemade fish and chips. Or, the creaminess of the wine can elevate a platter of spaghetti with anchovy carbonara to an other-wordly level of delicious. As for quick and easy, this French white pairs seamlessly with most any simply grilled fish or chicken recipe. A summer panzanella with asparagus is a terrific light option.
