Les Romains Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

The 2016 'Les Romains' is simply gorgeous, as it begins with striking aromatics of wildflowers, honey, lychee and cantaloupe that immediately draw you in. The texture and minerality is simply stunning, as flavors of with tree fruit and citrus oil leave a mark. The oily, unctuous character this possesses is found in very few Sauvignon Blancs. An absolutely brilliant wine from one of the leading producers in the region. Drink 2019-2033- 95 — 4 days ago

Sancerre Pinot Noir 2015

The same charming, vibrant cherry to cranberry notes of a lively California Pinot and some of the earthy dried violet of Burgundian Pinot, but it's all softly layered around this extremely crunchy, extremely mineral skeleton with a lot of energy. — a day ago

Le Grand Moulin Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Color of a young white wine, soft but bright straw-yellow. Mineral and herbal nose. On the palate, true expression of Sauvignon Blanc: Herbal, zesty and lime freshness, fleshy and round. Not overpowering acidity, just enough to keep the structure and the foundation of the wine solid throughout the finish. @sommselect I guess I kind of understand the profile of Sauv Blanc from Kimmeridgian soil. Fascinating... next time will taste a Chablis alongside to taste the similarities. Did a bold pairing with fish curry (paprika, coriander and ginger mainly), went really well especially because the dish did not have any creamy or buttery flavors. The fish has fats that is really oily (very Asian), so that kind of complemented this wine I think! — 16 days ago

Les Monts Damnés Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Rather full-bodied and sturdy in this vintage. Not terribly aromatic yet but showing excellent concentration and finesse across the palate, fruit becoming fleshier and weightier with air, finishing with spearmint and coriander flavors. Solid mineral backbone. — 6 days ago

Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2016

Unusual Pinot noir from Loire. Hay notes and low fruit on the nose yet wine opens to an amazing raspberry body that has a fairly high acidity, deep tannins and a grassy finish. Very nice! — 6 hours ago

La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Crispy delicious Sancerre with citrus and plenty of mineral notes. Great producer. If you let it warm up slightly you will get all the creamy buttery flavours. Awesome! — 10 days ago

Cuvée Les Coûtes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

From FK Fall tasting, $28.95 before discount. Stephen said, from a humble winery, made by 2 brothers in the Loire. A beautifully made wine. Most Sauvignon Blancs are obnoxious but not this one. Liked it not so cold to really taste the wine. — 5 days ago
