Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

I think this Sancerre is punching way above its weight class. Greenish yellow color. Lots of stone, minerality, citrus and tertiary tropical scents on the nose. The pallet is crisp, fresh, and balanced with great acidity on the finish. Cheers. — 6 days ago

Chavignol Sancerre Pinot Noir Rosé 2007


When I went to open this wine for a friend who contributed to my wine education during the early years he immediately said, "Not until it was at least a decade on .” I shrugged my shoulders and buried it. I understand now. I had concerns as there was something floating around in the bottle. In the mouth it felt 3-D but never heavy. Flavors of watermelon , peach , red berries, and flavors quite frankly I had never experienced in a wine or could identify. At times it showed like a cocktail one would get on the beach , at other times like a complex sour ale. I feel confident in its youth it had a higher level of sweetness but like a great Riesling it perfectly integrated. A lingering juicy finish. I realize this wine would not be for everyone but for me one of my most memorable wine experiences and what I love about wine.. Honestly, my score is irrelevant.

@Severn Goodwin Lol , to be honest if I had more than one I would probably open it now because I’d be curious about the evolution. I have a ‘15 so that will sleep.

@Ira Schwartz We've got '12 thru '16, at least 3 of each. But they're out of my hands in storage. I'll pull some up maybe this Fall or next Spring.

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2016

There is so much here, that will be revealed over the next 10-15 years. For now, drinking it can only be called infanticide. Sad 😔 I popped now. — 14 days ago

On the palate is lime, gooseberry, grapefruit, lemon, smokey flint and minerality.

This wine is light to medium bodied with a fresh clean mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity with a long citrus mineral finish. I hooe everyone has had a wonderful weekend? With the week ahead lets all stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Holy cow, what a home run! This my friends its the taste of terroir. Dense and muscular, with a focused minerality that is keeping the beat.
Despite its youth it is very expressive and not holding back on its complexity. François Cotat La Grande Côte, a marvelous piece and an act in the magic of wine.
Pronounced intense aromas with a layered depth Lemon juice, kiwi, boxwood, dandelions almost reaching towards honey with a prominent Limestone mineraliy that is keeping the beat.
High piercing acidiy that cuts through the smooth and ripe edges. Dense and athletic on the mid palate with a layered complexity, salty backbone as it expands before closing up in a long tightening finish.
