Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Needs some air to come around, but then the nose shows a nice balance of musky gooseberry and crisp pear fruit, together with wet chalky minerality. Lots of flavor concentration in the mouth, with a big initial whack of stone which then recedes and let the fruit come through. Very crisp, with mouthwatering acids increasing as the finish recedes. Wish I had some clams casino right now! — 16 hours ago

La Magie des Caillottes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

9.1

Defacto organic, minimal sulfur. Only medium yellow. Intense fruit with a spectrum of golden fruits and sneaky acids that not only keep it focussed but bring sharper focus to the long, energetic finish — 3 days ago

La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

As usual, this is a very good rendition. Nose has crisp apple and lemon-lime fruit, high-toned powdered stone, and a meadow flower note. So lively. Intense and vibrant in the mouth. There is a ton of crisp, ripe fruit, zingy acids, limestoney minerality. Floods the mouth with flavors and aromas. Round-textured at the same time. Long finish. Really fine. In 375. — 15 days ago

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Pretty incontestably considered to be the very best Sancerre, and it did indeed show its singularity. It’s intensely tropical and perfumed with a waxy and weighty texture. Shows ripe tropical fruit, banana, lilies, savory herbs and a touch of alcohol but it doesn’t detract and subsides with air. It’s exceptionally deep and has such presence on the midpalate with great cut and a seamless transition to finish. There is so much material here and it clearly is built to age, and definitely needs plenty of time in the decanter as it showed best after 2 hours. — a month ago

Kirkland Signature Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

One of the best #sancerre examples I’ve had, up there with the Cotat clan’s offerings. Ripe white peach, a touch of lemongrass, floral aromas meld into a beautifully balanced, luscious apricot-reminiscent #sauvignonblanc expression in the mouth. This is yet another Costco wine that I should have bought more than one bottle of. — 6 days ago

Les Belles Vignes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Our favorite white wine for an evening with friends. Very fruit forward but with enough acid to finish incredibly clean — 14 hours ago

Chêne Marchand Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

My 1st time with this producer of Sancerre which showed a rich, ripe lemony, citrus, crushed rock, wild herbs with racy acids. — 21 days ago
