Here we are on the presipis of a long weekend called Labor Day weekend. I picked up the 2017 Fournier Père et Fils Sancerre Les Belles Vignes. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

On the nose I am getting apricot, mandarin orange, orange rind, grapefruit and minerality.

On the palate there is beautiful fruit notes of lime, grapefruit, white peach, gooseberry, herbaceous notes and limestone minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with fresh crispness and high acidity that leads into a long mineral and fruit finish that is bone dry. Love this wine. Let me tell you, on the white side Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc are definitely my go to whites. Sancerre and New Zealand have it going on when it comes to Sauvignon Blanc. Have a great long weekend and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Light and tropical, neither word being a compliment when talking Sancerre. Did I mention seriously overpriced too?

Chalk and limestone with lemon peel and just a hint of butter. Bigger mouthfeel than a lot of whites.
