Strong wine, so clearly marked by its skin contact. It's an AOC wine. Very surprising.

Incredible Sancerre. Oxidized, structure with razor acidity.

Second time having this producer/bottle but this was much older than the previous 2014 vintage I had. Drinking young with great energy and acidity. Great dry finish, though some notes of orange peel linger. Pairs well with different foods! LOVE!

Botrytus, honey. One of the more unique wines I've tasted.
