Pure Sancerre. Crisp, clean. Some citrus, fresh hay, and a sea air and ocean finish.

Sweet fruit on the nose - advertises a mild ripe grape with some acid and hints of fragrant summer grasses...

Good body with an amazing nose of peaches and melon with a little salty stone underneath. Big saline/mineral upfront that fades to a dry fruitiness. Would be great with shellfish!

'Go to' Sancerre for clams in white wine sauce over pasta. Light color. Citrus and ocean nose. Lemon grass, citrus, and minerals. Great QPR.

Pale gold color. Expected lemon, grass, and 'cat pee' on the nose. Lemon zest, a bit of melon, with good acidity throughout. Minerality keeps it less austere and a bit more balanced. Adding a cup of it to boiled clams with shallots and chives. Should be good.

Pale straw color. Typical citrus and grass on the nose. Dominated by lemon zest, minerality, and citrus. Crisp. Good QPR.

Pale color. Very mineral dominated nose. Crisp minerality and acidity. Some lemon and lemongrass. Decent Sancerre (Sauvignon Blanc). Enjoyable and good QPR.
