Sauvignon Blanc, according to JANE MACQUITTY, is 'summer in a glass, with its mouth-watering acidity and vibrant, zesty gooseberry and elderflower-charged fruit'. She adds that the 2004 European Sauvignons are 'infinitely more zingy and refreshing than the rich but flabby heatwave-affected 2003s'. Her selection includes 2004 Domaine Naudet Sancerre (9.55; Waitrose); 2004 Muscadet de Svre et Maine (3.99; Waitrose); and 2004 Southbank Estate, The Terraces Sauvignon Blanc (6.99, or 5.99 each when two bottles are bought; Majestic).
