Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Haven't updated here for the longest time, but that's kinda how my wine journey has been in the last couple of weeks - dry af, stash running low, without any means of resupply in Kuching. Nevertheless, the tide has turned with my trips to Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Wine hour is at hand!

Did have this though during my dry spell. It was sort of nice find in this desolate land. Blistering acidity, floral, fruity - orange zest, grapefruit, finished with a light bitterness, honey, pebbly. Medium finish. A real solid Sancerre.

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

Some Sancerre can have more of that ripe fruit, but this guy is pure, precise slate/stone and minerality. Don’t get me wrong, there is a bit of fruit hiding in there but it’s more of the lemon zest type. Easy sipping on a warm day...or a cold one. Really, any time. — 9 days ago


Les Monts Damnés Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Intense nose of cracked wet limestone, citrus, and gooseberry. Densely- flavored too, with intense minerality. It has a denser, more viscous texture than most Sancerre, but not too much so. Surprisingly full but long and zesty. A Sancerre that clearly has spent some time at the gym. — 5 days ago

Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2017

Leather, the herbaceous musk of rose stems and thorns, and strawberries in the nose.

Luscious strawberries. I was in the mood for a light red, and this did not disappoint. It’s got character — a satisfying flavor and after taste rounds out the sip. Wonderful for a cool Spring night.

Comte Lafond Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

Love this ‘17 Sancerre. Almost has a honeyed note. More golden than I’d expect but just lovely wine. Far cry from figgy Napa SB or the grapefruit/passion fruit onslaught of NZ... — 4 days ago
