Monoparcelle 469 Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

2019; Very hot today (96°) needed cold wine relief.
Nose has under-ripe green apple, lime zest, peach, crushed lemongrass, green melon, river stones and wet chalk.
Palate has under-ripe pineapple, key lime, yellow grapefruit, under-ripe white peach, crushed limestone and faint salinity with medium acidity.

I'm familiar with this producer, but the first time seeing this single lieu-dit (Les Sentiers) selection. Very nice effort here. Double decanted with 2H rest. 93-94

I would like to know how many families in Sancerre aren’t named Reverdy.

Gérard Boulay

Monts Damnés Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Some serious power and amplitude here. Vibrantly fruited, supported by the deep chalky tones of this terroir. Oro blanco, candied pear, quince, some exotic tones like pineapple and mango. There’s an underlying grip and phenolic bite, thick skins, adding extra dimension. The cool herbs break late and more with aeration, aloe and chervil. Classic Boulay in its pleasure factor. — 21 days ago

Les Fossiles Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Tried twice! Pale lemon with aromas of ripe stone and citrus fruits with dried herb notes. On the palate flavors of apple and grapefruit with crisp acidity. Medium finish, ending with citrus, grassy herb and mineral character. — 9 days ago
