2010 Gerard Bigonneau Quincy: Sublime

july 19, 2011: this 2010 gerard bigonneau quincy had a grassy nose, with some grapefruit to the flavor at the tail end. i loved this wine! it was the best white wine of my july trip to france. 12.5 percent alcohol. we had it with st. pierre, a type of white fish, in a very rich butter sauce with mashed potatoes and green beans, at a very nice restaurant in dinard. i think it was a sauvignon blanc grape but i can't confirm that. it kind of reminded me of a muted new zealand sauvignon blanc. my dad thinks it comes from near sancerre, in the loire valley of france, which would likely make it a sauvignon blanc, too. dinner with my parents and grandmere.
