Spring is in the air and as the warm weather approaches, I tend to drink white wine rather than red. I like Sauvignon Blanc and one of my favorite selections is a Pouilly-Fumé from the Loire Valley by Ladoucette.
I first discovered this wine at the Café de Flore on Boulevard St. Germain. Later, I learned the producer has a boutique at 42, avenue Victor Hugo, not far from my apartment and, more important, along my bus route. Ladoucette is widely available in the United States as well.
Sauvignon Blanc is crisp, refreshing and elegant. It's great on its own, with appetizers or with light meals, such a salads, poultry and fish.
