Cheap Wine Challenge

A Sancerre Stunt Double

© Dale Anderson

Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: Ben Bohen, wine buyer at Waterfront Wines and Spirits in Brooklyn

What: 2012 Marc Plouzeau Touraine Sauvignon Blanc for $13

Why: “This is a crisp and totally quaffable white wine that goes well with a variety of dishes, but is also a crowd-pleaser just on its own. It delivers some of the racy minerality of Sancerre at half the price or even less.”

Kristin Donnelly is a former Food & Wine editor and cofounder of Stewart & Claire, an all-natural line of lip balms made in Brooklyn.
