Lombeline is selected by Charles Derain, former sommelier at Patrick Guilbaud, and one of the best tasters in this country. As well as bringing in a very nice range of fine Burgundy and a few other goodies, he sources this Loire Sauvignon. We all need a house white, something reliable that we can crack open and enjoy before dinner or with a starter. The Lombeline falls into this category; inexpensive, well-made and satisfying.
