Victoria Moore's brief this week? To find some sub-10 Loire Sauvignon Blanc alternatives and rivals "that, while not cheap, may offer better value than a similarly priced Sancerre". Her choices? She ran with a 2006 Quincy Domaine de la Pierre (8.99, Waitrose), which is "ideal for those who don't like a sense of fruitiness to interefere and want something to sip as an apertif". Moore also recommends the "unexpected" 2006 Touraine Domaine des Trois Demoiselles (7.50, Berry Bros & Rudd) with a "gravity you wouldn't expect in something as simple as Sauvignon Blanc".
