Made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape in the Sancerre region of France, this wine was very delicious. Typical of the varietal, and the region- grapefruit and lemon zest on the nose. Transitioning to the palate, the wine was balanced with excellent acidity. I love Sav Blancs that cut your tongue with razor sharpness. More lemon and apple on the palate mixed with a certain minerality that I found intriguing. A very serviceable wine that could be enjoyed with any fish plate, a summer salad or as an aperitif. 89 points and 4 stars.
From Sancerre, this Sauvignon Blanc is delicious and very typical of the region.
On the nose, citrus and slate, which slide into the palate very smoothly. Grapefruit and lemon zest differentiate Loire valley wines from New World (New Zealand) Sauvignon Blancs. Leaner, more precise, this style is ‘sharper’. The acidity is not racy in this wine, but it is balanced.
I bought some bottles for Thanksgiving, it will do great with Turkey…. and cranberry. I tasted this wine at room temperature and was impressed. Chilled slightly, it’s gonna rock the white wine house! 4 stars, 89 points.
