Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Didier Dagueneau

Buisson Renard Pouilly- Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2015

2015 ‘Buisson Renard’ by Didier Dagueneau, is a spectacular effort. Now headed by Didier’s son, Louis-Benjamin, Dagueneau wines continue to set the standard for the Pouilly-Fume region. The wine shows wonderful flinty and damp earth tones with lemon oil drenched sourdough bread on this marvelous bouquet. The rich, almost unctuous texture to this wine, truly satisfies. Lemon zest, beeswax, ripe pear and starfruit flavors with wet stone and smoky mineral undertones all nicely amalgamate on the palate. Intense and showing beautifully in its youth, this dazzling Sauvignon Blanc will have an exceedingly long life in the cellar. Drink 2019-2033- 94 — 12 days ago

Le Mont Damné Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Seth Morgen Long

Great, young Dagueneau Mont Damnè- powerful and dense yet bright and shimmering. Tons of extract and texture. Also, these bottles are so damn heavy. — 15 days ago

Les Anges Lots Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Подарок С. Носова. Выпито в Лофте 15.07.19.Шикарный сансер. Нежный, с очень долгим послевкусием. Непохоже на Новозеландские совиньон бланы, но по - своему хорош. — 3 days ago

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Akmèniné Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Second time having this producer/bottle but this was much older than the previous 2014 vintage I had. Drinking young with great energy and acidity. Great dry finish, though some notes of orange peel linger. Pairs well with different foods! LOVE! — 12 days ago

Domaine Etienne Daulny

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

If Verdigny Sancerre is your thing, buy as much of this as you can. It’s massive in the typical ‘18 way, with waves of ripe capsicum and flint on the nose and palate. The long, acid finish persisted through six days open, and the intensity never wavered. Insane. — 4 days ago

Domaine Charpentier

Saint-Vincent Reuilly Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Domaine charpentier-reuilly Saint Vincent 2016. Sauvignon blanc.

Very mineral nose with chalk and lemon. Rather discreet. The palate is wonderful with a strong acid backbone, some lemon around and a texture, a thickness that has a kind of weight and grip on the sides that makes this wine both long and wide. Very impressive in terms of presence. Long finish with herbs and lemon. Very good !
