The Best White Wines to drink at Christmas

Domaine Jean Teiller: Menetou-Salon 2017
‘There are so many ordinary central Loire Sauvignon Blanca under the appellations Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, and good examples tend to be pretty expensive. Split the price difference with this excellent, organic example from the outlying Menetou Salon appellation. It has that blackurrant-leaf perfume of Loire Sauvignon and then reaches into every corner of the palate. Very impressive. Neither too sweet or too tart. The owners spent a year in New Zealand, apparently, which may help to explain all that fruit, but it tastes nothing like a Marlborough Sauvignon.
