Sauvignon Blanc

Vie di Romans

Pierre Sauvignon 2018

Medium gold, explosive aromas of ripe pineapple , lychee, kumquat and green melon. The wine is rich, nearly viscus, and packing serious weight. Long, sweet but balanced, mid-palate. Close to over-the-top in richness, but the flavors carry the day. A long way from Sancerre, but a style and food-friendliness that I have to acknowledge. At times I wasn’t sure, but finished the bottle….. and smiled! — 4 days ago

Crossroads Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Y’all, it’s hot in Texas. This wine definitely helps. Crisp and refreshing. Citrus and tropical fruit for the win. Enjoyable Thursday night casual bottle. — 6 days ago

I hate it. I don’t even want to open a red wine in this weather. I opened an Ovid white today in hopes of staying cool!

@Shay A Agreed on not opening reds. These temps are forcing me to enjoy whites more. Miserable. At least I’m finding some good ones.

Terroirs Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

The food is so good I forgot to drink my wine. A delicious fruity but not sweet Sav Blanc, paired well with all pasta dishes - meat & seafood! — 10 days ago

Clos de Beaujeu Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

This is liquid stone. Sure, there is some pear-inflected green apple fruit, and a hint of pineapple, but screaming amounts of crushed rock, especially on the palate. Nice, but not overpowering, acidity. Lengthy finish. This is a graduate seminar in Loire geology in a glass. — 2 days ago

Such a smashing rendition of a SB. I can’t think of anything else quite like this on the market today.
The acidity is relaxing, suggesting that you should consider consuming these now.

Enjoyed a bottle of 18 last night. In the zone as we speak. I tend to agree with you. Not getting any better.

Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This wine was fun and delicious. Green apples and melons stood out on the palate. Definitely an enjoyable easy drinking wine. Paired well with charcuterie. — 11 days ago

Chêne Marchand Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Great sauv blanc. Beguiling honeysuckle and green tropical fruit, pear, kiwi. Very generous, comparatively round and textured for Sancerre but still high acid. This will age well.

Unsurprisingly, even better on day 2. A riot of fruit aroma.

9.2-9.4 over a few days.

Pascal Jolivet

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

At nearly 7 years old, the 2015 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre pours a golden color. On the nose, notes of bruised apple, ripened pear, honey and pineapple upside down cake. On the palate, bruised red apple, Bartlett pear, honey and clove. Decent acid. Long finish. I don’t usually age Sancerre…but I dig the expression that some age has brought. I paired very well with chicken fried rice. Drink now…unless you want to see how far it goes, you know, for science. — 12 days ago

Napa County Sonoma County Sauvignon Blanc 2007

While being a HUGE wine - making you want to brush your teeth after a glass!!! - this wine is remarkably silky and smooth with vanilla, black cherries, and well integrated tannins. An absolutely wonderful experience today, but clearly still on the upswing of its maturity curve. — 12 days ago

Les Cris Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tasted blind with friends who thought more in the Alsatian dry Riesling or Pinot Blanc spectrum. I can taste why: has a thick mouthfeel & density of that area, & the Sauvignon Blanc Is a bit of a Zelig as it warms up. Very, very good. — 15 days ago
