Domaine Delaporte

Chavignol Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

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.

Tenuta Cavelier Pepe

Santa Vara Irpinia Falanghina


Lemon, green banana, lime pith, daisy, crushed rock dust, a sweet note: lemon verbena pudding. Lychee notes with lemon, lime and tangerine with amazing acid and mineral residuals that coalesce to lemon soaked pith. Round and lovely aura around tangential, edgy acid. Finesse.
