We really love the first tier bottle from Boulay, a wonderful value for $25. Nose has intense chalky limestone with grassy citrus zest. The palate is like spring wheat grass, yet it has the drying aspect of chalkboard dust (right on), and a medium level acid. It has tamed somewhat since our last experience, in a good way.

Yum Sancerre!
Grassy nose, nice mineral, elementary school chalk dust components. Palate had great, balanced acidity, light citrus and chalk/limestone. Really improving in the glass as the wine warms and gets some fresh air.
Chilling out on the patio on a wonderful 70° Berkshires afternoon, perfect mid-summer day.

White grapefruit, sour gooseberry, minerlaity, pyrazine notes of herbs and cut grass. Searing acid, so refreshing.

Excellent fruit to stand up to the acidity and minerality, one of the best I've tasted

Clean. Pure. Lite bright lemon and white grapefruit. Nothing bitter. Great mineral. An interesting aroma of honey left at the end, in the empty glass. A best selling Loire wine

Lime zest, citrus, and lots of acid with green herbs.
