Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Uniquely bright, pungent, refined. A bit austere now; citrusy, very tart, even a bit astringent, not super giving. Very elegant and fascinating, though I expected another level of concentration. Afraid it doesn’t quite add up to justify the price tag! — a day ago

Anciennes Vignes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Ripe fruit. Salty citrus. Quite good. Not your average Sancerre. +1 for Hawaii. — 7 days ago

Les Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Straw color, light and bright. Sweet fruit nose. Notes of honeydew melon, kiwi, meadow grass and beeswax. Still young in the mouth. In a good drinking window with years of life ahead of it. — 20 days ago

Le Grand Roc Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

This bottle didn’t impress me at $27 from Garagiste. Seemed a bit disjointed. Drinkable enough with fish though. — a day ago

Les Caillottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

4th of July treat. Needed 30 minutes of air. Full and textured with salted cantaloupe and honeydew melon. First Sancerre of this caliber that I’ve tasted. Great stuff. — 20 days ago

A very pleasant surprise. Nose presents straw, lemon zest and chalky minerality. The palate is untypically sweet, with toned-down acidity. Mid palate shows gooseberries without the tartness. Finishes soft, but still has focus, albeit somewhat blunted. Certainly idiosyncratic for Sancerre - Jean Georges Nougatine. — 16 days ago
