Delicious and focused from start to finish. Lime, lemon, white grapefruit, flint, ammonia, chalk, and wet grass are all present. Palate is tangy, wild, and refreshing. Brings into play some tropical fruits and almost goes straight into NZ SB before turning around. Overall is much more fruit driven then most Sancerre. Enjoyable.

Well made wine and if I was not getting tired of Sauv Blanc I would probably really enjoy this. Unfortunately for this wine, my pallet is craving a richer Chardonnay. I will still recommend though.

Just a baby and it shows. 2015 vintage and it's a bit underdeveloped. Very clean nose, showing flint, plenty of wet stone and smoke. Very little fruit, but some citrus and violet's come through. Palate is tart with green apple, lemon zest, quince and wet gravel. Acid is there, but it falls off pretty quickly. The wines youth, plus sour fruit and clumsy acidity just make for an unbalanced and one dimensional wine.
