So well presented on the nose and palate. Pure grapefruit nose, with tension and bright acidity on the mid-palate. Really nice honied sweetness balanced out pure Sancerre. I donโ€™t detect any wood treatment, which enables the squeaky clean presentation to dominate.

Pale lemon, clean aromas of flint, gooseberry, grapefruit and lemon; on the palate, dry with high acidity and lush flavors of passion fruit, gooseberry and grapefruit. Long finish, excellent balance.

Dense mineral and pithy citrus with tropical fruit highlights. Beautiful and classic expression.

Denser palate expression, loads of fruit in a medium flavor intensity. This is all about a texture of viscous body versus tense acidity. Not your typical seashell Sancerre, curious about the soils. Usually kimmeridgian or chalkboard matbe more limestone with less chalk?
