Sauvignon Blanc "rarely improves with age, so almost all should be drunk young," says Joanna Simon. For her this is one of the main attractions, she adds, but this is not the case amongst her UK sommelier friends. Regardless of their views, Simon selects a few of her current favourites. The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Clos Henri (14.40, Les Caves de Pyrne) has a "smoky, gooseberry intensity" with potential to age while the 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Iona (9.99, Waitrose) has "exceptionally pure fruit".
