Domaine Lecomte
Quincy “Vielle Vignes”
2008
13.0% ABV | Price: about $20

Pale straw yellow and aromatic, with a salty, floral nose. On the palate it has brilliant acidity: citrusy, but with pear and basil, too. It tastes like jasmine in full bloom. It offers an herbaceous finish that’s spicy but languorous. It takes its time.

Restrained and elegant, this wine poses an Old-world counterpoint to the explosively grassy, lemony Sauvignon Blancs found in the New.

“It’s alive,” says my husband. Yes, and I’m glad I am, too.
