Wine Review: Grain de Lune 2020 Sauvignon Gris, Bordeaux Blanc

Sauvignon Gris is a beautifully exotic grape: it is a pink mutation of the ubiquitous Sauvignon Blanc. You see a bit of it in South America but very little in its homeland of Bordeaux, France. Like many Sauvignon Gris, this bottling is much lusher. It also offers a more floral nose than the typical grass and green pepper of Sauvignon Blanc, which our L2 Sommelier Students know all too well. Aromatics veer towards lemon verbena, with a palate of fresh creamy pears and exotic toasted spices. Wine Rating: 90 Points. Price: $8.99 in Pennsylvania, with an average of $12 around the country.
