La Moussière Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Just terrific. Nose has the purest essence of ripe lemon-lime and crushed limestone. Not even a hint of unripe grass or cat pee. In the mouth, there is saliva-inducing bright but ripe acidity, and mouthfilling flavors. Gorgeous. — 7 days ago

Matthias et Emile Roblin

Origine Sancerre Rouge Pinot Noir 2017

Very enjoyable wine. Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of lemon, unripe white peach, lemongrass, wet slate. Similar notes on the palate with a hint of lemon custard. Medium body. Medium plus acidity. Medium finish. — 5 days ago

Clos La Néore Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

Whacko wonderful. This has always had huge concentration but has lost the minerality meanwhile (presumably still in there somewhere). Always Hermitage-like. — 7 days ago

Domaine Delaporte

Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

Lean aromatic spot of light, clean, almost frosted lemon, lime juice, lime pith, and gooseberry aromas. Chalky. With zippy, bright lemon zest, nectarine, dried starfruit, green-white underripe blackberries, black currant leaf, and grapefruit pith. Amazing Sancerre with buoyancy and ethereal grace.

Aurore Dezat Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Gravel, a bit of grapefruit. Lots of acidity. Certainly not a “blow u off (away) wine”, but pleasant with scampi. Would b a good summer white. — 18 days ago

Domaine Fouassier

Les Grands Champs Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc

2017 vintage. Always a pleasure to drink these wines from this top producer who vinifies all his vineyards seperately. Les Grands Champs is made from 30 - 45 years old vines, mainly calcareous soils. Very attractive nose with ripe white peach, lemon confit and a hint of fresh mint. Concentrated, with an exemplary purity of ripe white fruit, rich and fresh at the same time, profound and long. Biodynamically farmed. Another excellent wine from this producer! — 14 days ago

Patient Cottat

Anciennes Vignes Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Domaine François Cotat

Chavignol Vin de Table Rouge 2017

Wildly expressive but not necessarily coherently so. Would be interesting to see if age sands down some of those rough edges. — 5 days ago
