Well made wine and if I was not getting tired of Sauv Blanc I would probably really enjoy this. Unfortunately for this wine, my pallet is craving a richer Chardonnay. I will still recommend though.

Delicious and focused from start to finish. Lime, lemon, white grapefruit, flint, ammonia, chalk, and wet grass are all present. Palate is tangy, wild, and refreshing. Brings into play some tropical fruits and almost goes straight into NZ SB before turning around. Overall is much more fruit driven then most Sancerre. Enjoyable.

Just a baby and it shows. 2015 vintage and it's a bit underdeveloped. Very clean nose, showing flint, plenty of wet stone and smoke. Very little fruit, but some citrus and violet's come through. Palate is tart with green apple, lemon zest, quince and wet gravel. Acid is there, but it falls off pretty quickly. The wines youth, plus sour fruit and clumsy acidity just make for an unbalanced and one dimensional wine.

Notes of gooseberry and elderflower and a hint of pink grapefruit, with a pleasantly effervescent mouthfeel

Still young. Slightly over tart with fair mineral finish. Would be interesting to try in a year or two. Not a great value at $21.99 2015 on 9/2/16
