Top 10 wines in the US press

Mouton Cadet Sauvignon Blanc Bordeaux 2012

originalSandra Silfven, writing in the Detroit News, praised the wines of Mouton Cadet which she said “still delivers after all these years” in recommending this Sauvignon Blanc.

She said: “Boomers — and before them, their parents — took the step from sweet, fortified wines to dry table wines with this brand, which still today does not disappoint, and is still widely available at wine shops and better stocked supermarkets.

She added: “When people talk about White Bordeaux — this is what they are talking about — crisp, bone-dry Sauvignon Blanc from the Bordeaux region of France. This wine is priced like an entry-level white but it doesn’t act like one. It way-overdelivers for the price — and has for years. To appreciate it, you have to love this style Sauvignon Blanc — which is not for sweet palates. It’s crisp, fruity and dry. Aromas are grapefruit and gooseberry with floral, herbal notes. In the mouth, you get the tartness of grapefruit zest, green herbs, tart gooseberry fruit and a finish with good length. A perfect pour for summer. This wine was introduced by Baron Philippe de Rothschild in 1930!”

Price: $11
