1995 Lapostolle Sauvignon Blanc ($7)

WINE OF THE WEEK

March 06, 1996|By Michael Dresser

This superb white wine from the Colchagua region of Chile is one of the finest values on the market today. California sauvignon blancs with this much fullness and flavor generally cost $12-$15. Nuances of peach, pear, tropical fruits and herbs give it considerable complexity, and the judicious use of oak rounds it out beautifully. It's no surprise that Lapostolle's wines are being made under the guidance of Michel Rolland, owner of Chateau Bon Pasteur, one of the finest winemakers of Bordeaux.
