2011 Taste the Difference Pouilly-Fumé, Loire Valley

( £11.99 down to £8.99, 13%, Sainsbury's )

Made by the brilliant André Figeat, this is a winner every year at JS, even in tricky vintages like 2011. Focused, nettley and taut, this is bright and refreshing with notes of minerals, dill, cut grass and citrus fruit. Long and complex on the palate, this is at its best with goat’s cheese.
