Anciennes Vignes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The 2018 ‘Anciennes Vignes’ Sancerre is a beautiful new wine by Cottat. The aromatic range is really good from nutty and earthy undertones to wet stone and pink grapefruit blossom aromas that meld in the glass. The weight is fantastic as bright citrus oil and green apple connect with the lovely earthy tones of the wine. This finishes exceedingly long. A fantastic effort, this is best enjoyed in its youth while the brightness remains, although this has the rich texture to cellar over the next five plus years. Drink 2019-2025- 92 — 3 days ago

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

This is spectacular on the nose. Big but refined with lime, anise, melon, cool slate. The texture is great- rounded, succulent and polished. The minerality and length is something else. Truly the Raveneau of Sancerre. Wonderful. — 4 days ago

Imagine a Sancerre with the depth and poise of a very good white Bordeaux. Much more sophisticated and intense than other Sancerre I’ve tried. Larry turned me on to these a while ago, but very little is made and reaches the US

Haute Victoire Quincy Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Nose has freshly mowed field, spring rain, light salinity, grapefruit peel and white florals.

Palate has refreshing tart (medium) lemon/grapefruit blend, wet grassy notes and great Kimmeridgian core.

Great QPR, Quincy is a wonderful alternative to Sancerre, and well worth a market search. A lightly imported AOC, but also be on the lookout for Menetou-Salon and Reuilly, which neighbor Quincy to the East and West, respectively.

La Côte des Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

High 13.5%. Still an incredible Sancerre. Quite tropical. Yes grapefruit but not over the top. Hint bitter. Apricots. Roasted Hazelnuts. From Seaside Food Market in Cardiff. It’s so good I think I will buy another bottle just to try it again. — 2 days ago

Cuvée les Porcheronnes Les Loges Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2015

1 of 2 byob choices with classic French bistro food (gem salad with Roquefort & hazelnuts, my friend had delicious Baked trout with crispy skin). A real eye opener: classic Fume smoky nose & such an elegant mouthfeel. Pitch perfect balance. Damn. — 12 days ago

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2012

A SB not for the person looking for the tropics. Classic Silex hailing from the Upper Loire Valley. Spent gunpowder and fireworks on the nose. Lemon curd, flint and maybe wet wool. Salty finish that grabs you with the a slight acid tug. — 2 days ago

Pur Sang Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Off the Crownshy NYC list, this was wonderfully fragrant with notes of citrus, green apples, limestone, and some mango. Great acidity matches a strong core of fruit. Young, needs time. Great food wine. — 13 days ago
