Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Famille Bougrier (Domaines Bougrier)

Pure Loire Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Clear straw color, aromas of white orange blossoms, passion fruit and a hint of agave nectar. Beautiful flavors of orange blossom, citrus and honeysuckle. Went really good with lemon rosemary chicken and ginger tumeric rice. — 5 days ago

Lucien Crochet

Le Chêne Marchand Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2016

The bouquet on the 2016 Lucien Crochet Sancerre Le Chene Marchand showed a beautiful mix of young mango with wet stone, chalk dust, lime zest and hints of dried savory herbs. On the palate, I found rich weighty textures which were perfectly offset by zesty acidity and spice as a cascade of minerals, green apple, with hints of honey, lime and inner floral tones coated the senses. The finish was long as slightly oily textures slowly faded from the palate, leaving a coating of green citrus, with minerals and residual mouthwatering acidity. It's amazing now but I know this will only get better with a few years in the cellar. — 20 days ago

Fournier Père & Fils

Vin de Pays de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2016

One of my favorite affordable but still high quality Sauvignon blanc. Fournier has great Sancerre from Loire valley and reason why this Sauvignon is good because Fournier mixes Sancerre grapes 🍇 Crispy, refreshing, melon 🍈, grassy, citrus, perfect balance of what Sauvignon should be! — 14 days ago

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Akmèniné Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

A real eye opener of a wine and not your typical Sancerre. I’m sure some would call this natural wine flawed but the skin contact and blend of some botrytis affected grapes give it a whole new dimension. Dry, but a certain volume and a hint of sweetness on the nose. Serve chilled but let it warm up a bit in the glass. Mesmerizing! Paired well with spicy Korean food. — 7 days ago

Killer Quaffer Aperitif: honeydew & guava quickly overtaken by a variety of citrus, w minerality, almost salinity, and a powder flower petal sensation that keeps the experience light on its feet — 19 days ago

Clos du Tue-Boeuf

Le Buisson Pouilleux Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Apricots, tangerines, honey and white flowers. Delicious. Supple long and round with almost a chenin quality. Slightly oxidative. Long finish. Some residual sugar... a bit too much for my taste. Would have otherwise rated higher. Really intriguing wine. — 11 days ago

Henry Natter

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

I’ve been drinking this fairly regularly since my local Costco started stocking this vintage. Every bottle I open is getting better, more floral. Lots of flowers and honeysuckle going in the direction of lychee. There’s also a lot of mixed citrus flavors, with grapefruit coming out. It all rides on a background of oak and a little vanilla, and almost cardamom. There’s a little gravel and maybe limestone minerality with balanced acidity. Very nice wine that holds up to Asian food. — 5 months ago

Les Herses Silex Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Palmer Emmitt
9.2

This is a white wine with serious complexity. Great texture with gripping minerality and flavors of apple and peach skin that endure on the long finish. Some intriguing savory notes as well and of course plenty of acid. — a day ago

Spring Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2011

07/V/2018
Белая черешня, апельсин, узбекский лимон, свежая тыква, мел, полевые цветы, соцветие укропа, сельдерей. Среднетелое, с красивой напряжённой структурой, упругой, но мягкой кислотностью и очень тонкой обрамляющей сливочностью. Во вкусе добавляется мятный холодок, тальк, легкий тон пармезана. Прополис в долгом деликатном послевкусии. Глубоко и непринуждённо. 18/20

Laïka Val de Loire Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Not at all flinty, but mineral and much more viscous than a typical sb. Bright acidity and great length — 6 days ago
