Cuvée "La Grange Dimière" Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

Just delicious on this outrageously hot evening. Pristinely pure strawberry and cherry fruit on the nose, with a fair whack of crushed rock. Crisp and flavorful in the mouth, with good intensity and freshness. Good acids and an attractive micro-note of bitterness at the tail end. IMHO, well-made Sancerre rose is the pinnacle of rose. — 19 days ago

Santenay-Commes 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Needed 2 hours to open up. Raspberry, cranberry fruit. Tart. Kind of deep pitched for a Burgundy. Not much in the way of tannins. Others on Cellartracker called this delicate. This bottle wasn’t at least compared to the 2013 Jean Tardy Gevrey Chambertin Champerrier I posted on just prior to this one. — 3 years ago

Le Clocher d'Amélie Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Doing the typical “Two sides of the Loire” comparative tasting.
Muted on the nose with shy green grass & nettle + starts showing a very interesting waxy note after some time. More vivid on the palate, though still defined rather by its acidic structure than fruit. Ripe gooseberries, green apples and the grass again. Finishes off with an austere flinty, slightly steely note.
Not bad but quite far from what Sancerre is capable of.

La Côte de Bué Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Nice Sancerre inviting scents of grapefruit and mint, unfortunately lacking a bit of complexity, acidity and length to bring it to another level — 5 years ago
