Karine Lauverjat Sancerre with Dinner on Tuesday

After buying a pound of flounder, couscous and some vegies for a quickly prepared Tuesday dinner, it dawned on me that one thing missing in the picture was a nice white wine to go with it.

I thought Loire and Sancerre, without further ado stopped by local shop and picked a bottle of Sancerre (2010) by Karine Lauverjat.


What you get is sauvignon blanc in its pure expression and as fish friendly as any wine can be.

A delicious bargain with its $15 sale price.

The Lauverjat family has been making wine in the area for generations. They use sustainable methods.

She does not like waste and writes in her introduction: 'There are times...
