Not the typical Sancerre. 50% old French barrel. Grown 100% on silex soil. Distinct jalapeño on the nose. Quite rich and full bodied. Great acidity and chalky minerals.

Tasted blind. Wasn’t quite sure where the pyrazine notes go, maybe the warm vintage, like 15 and 16? But the rest is fabulous. Focused acidity and beautiful chalky minerals. Some oak treatments and it wasn’t overdone. Warm and round.

Wow! Zing! Fresh acidity. Didn't really seem like a Sauvignon Blanc at first. It's subtle and opened up.

Sur silex - super délicat - abricot - pêche - fleur - très ample en bouche juste une pointe de fraîcheur a la fin très minéral

Supergott, somrigt, fläder och päron. Inte värt pengarna. Märker ingen skillnad från 180 kronorssancerre

Incredible white, a lot of citrus, long after taste

Lovely steel and flint finish with tropical fruit and a light nicely balanced acidity working well with food.
