Fancy seeing this in Malaysia. This wine's a throwback to when I first got into wine back in Australia. I can clearly remember being recommended this Sancerre by our local bottle shop as a study of the appellation. In hindsight, I can see why. Excellent typicity in this 2018 iteration - on the nose, ripe gooseberry and melon fruit, flint, and a grassy asparagus-like note. The palate's less overt, showing more grapefruit and green apple. It finishes a little "sweet" for my liking, but that's tamed by crisp acidity and a subtle stony character. While it doesn't bode well with my preference these days, this drinks well as a nice trip down memory lane.

Classic Sancerre, slight creaminess. Really great on its own or with seafood.

Let me start by saying I am not a huge Sauvignon Blanc Dan but decided to give this a try. It’s middle of the road for me and not very memorable. Still it’s a good sipping wine and quite creamy.
