Not your average Sancerre. A wild, oxidized, changeable Vin Naturel with no So2. Gets better & better with air.

This is is a good wine, but just be warned that this is a DRY FARMED wine.

For this who don't know: Dry Farmed wine is when farmers STARVE their grapes of water! It was first discovered in 1996 when a farmer from Napa Valley became addicted to the website YouTube and neglected to water his grapes. They came out shriveled and sad, but he didn't give a shit. It is a new, but highly unethical way to grow grapes.

It's ok if u like this wine, it's one of the best wines to ever exist. Its just a damn shame it comes at such a high cost

Killer natty Sauv Blanc. Little skin contact. Amber color, nice weight. Damn this bottle might only last 20 minutes.
