Les Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Light gold color. Fruit forward nose with notes of straw, apricot skin, fruit pit and minerals. A bit over the top in the mouth; the rich, hot fruit overwhelms the minimal structure and acidity. Nice drink for an outdoor music in the park picnic — 11 days ago

Domaine Etienne et Sébastien Riffault

Auksinis Maceration Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2013

“I love the palate on it.. everything else is weird.” A buddy who isn’t used to natural wine said after trying this. Ha. The nose is super oxidative, almost like apple cider and mulling spices. Anise, brown sugar, persimmon. The palate is where it comes alive however - high acid, guava, passion fruit, and more mulling spices. Lovely finish. Not for the faint of heart as this is funky as all get out. But really cool natural producer. — 21 days ago

Domaine de la Chézatte

Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

An excellent stylistically correct Sancerre that exhibits fine tones of grass, lemon curd, minerality with an overlay of nice tropical fruit. Typical French Sauvignon Blanc with all the characteristics of its origin. Quite nice — 10 days ago

Gérard Boulay

Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2014

Morello cherries, green & black peppercorns, haystack, game, marjoram, dried thyme, mint. Rounded acidity/minimal smooth velvet tannins, medium bodied, satin texture, herbal-gamy finish. Quirky with prominent herbal notes; some reduction that pairs well with venison, red meats, funky cheeses. Do not expect a polished-elegant Pinot Noir. — 14 days ago

French Blonde Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This is my favorite summer wine. Extremely smooth and easy to drink, not too sweet (but by no means dry), and has a complex enough finish to impress the sophisticates. An excellent date night wine that punches far beyond its price point — 3 days ago

Silex Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Compact, pure, distinctive. Recent trip to Sancerre has reinvigorated my interest in this region where wines from great terriors are abound. This is ample, with plenty of energy and zip but offers more impact on the palate. Aromatically intriguing and complex. A really great bottle of Sauv Blanc — 3 days ago

Domaine Vacheron

Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2015

Nice. Very delicate color in the glass - pale red. Quite precise on the palate, with good earth and light crushed flowers / red fruit. Finish is soft and could a bit more acid but this is a nice example of Pinot Noir from Sancerre. — 21 hours ago

Edmond Vatan

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2010

First Vatan for us—really unlike anything we’ve tasted. Each sip reveals more nuances. Green apple, almonds, slate, mint, basil, fantastic bitterness, long finish. An experience. Wonderful with Georgian food. — 11 hours ago

Cuvée Arnaud Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Tropical fruit, confit of pineapple, pear tart. A little fatty on the mouth, lacking tension but a hot year. Aged surprisingly well — 3 days ago
