Straw gold. Grassy nose; moreso than usual for this appellation. Honeyed quince and green grass on the palate. Medium acidity and medium finish. Very tasty.

This was opened several weeks ago, but the acidity and that tight sealing screw cap kept it surprisingly fresh. Another reason this is my go-to Sauvignon.

Bright, surprisingly deepish beige gold. Honeyed orange and straw on the nose. Medium mouthfeel, medium plus acidity. The rustic side of Sauvignon with more hay than grass and more satsuma than grapefruit. Great food wine that would even appeal to the sippers. Great value.

Deliciously lime-y, chalky mineral. Quite nice.

Say what?! A Burgundian sac blanc?! Awesome fun wine. The burgundy terroir removes some of the classic sac blanc notes and hides them. Definitely still a sac blanc

Very nice Saint-Bris; nearer to Sancerre than most I've had. Lovely wine for a garden party.
