@Delectable Wine - This is the white Le Demoiselle Sancerre. It’s beautifully balanced and subtly intense. Nose has chalky limestone, lemon juice, and a hint of gooseberry. Great acids but soft and without any sharp edges. I’m betting pretty old vines. Long, pure, mouthwatering finish. Elegant.

Red Sancerre, so often overlooked. This one was paired with Babes fried chicken. Matched it with aplomb and a saucy sashay. Great fruit, good balance, this one to hunt down. Well done Alphonse Mellot.

Crazy juice. Powerful, lifted, ripe fruit but super fresh on the palate... Top top Sancerra

Medium acid, not sharp or stinging but enough to keep it from being flabby and cloying. Lemon and slate and a bit of fruit pucker.

Really an excellent Pinot noir from Sancerre. After my wife and I took a sip we both exclaimed that we need to start buying more Sancerre rouge - just a great quality / price ratio, especially for Pinot noir. This is ruby red, with a dusty cherry nose. A touch restrained on the palate with lots of minerality coming through - great cherry notes on the palate, long finish. Really nice.
