THOMAS-LABAILLE Sancerre Les Monts Damnés 2002
92 points, $20
A rapier, this racy Sancerre features citrus peel, peach, lemon pound cake, lime and mineral notes on a crunchy, vibrant texture. Tangy and precise on the finish, with a lovely lemon zest edge. Drink now through 2005. Smart Buys. From France. —James Molesworth
