I tried the 2010 Pinot Blanc from Gustave Lorentz while in San Francisco last weekend. I told the sommelier I liked the acidity of a dry sauvignon blanc and, sometimes, the roundness of a chardonnay. He poured me a taste of this pinot blanc, and it was a good marriage of acidity and delicious fruit and flowers. How did he know? Lesson: Trust the expert. If only I could find experts for all aspects of life.
