Very impressive sancerre...classic intense nose of grapefruit, lemon/lime, tart on palate, vegetal in background with some jalapeño and slight bell pepper...slight oak on this with baking spices and unusual for sancerre...acid medium + ....well balanced and perfect with homemade chicken teriyaki with veggies/bell peppers..

Nice melons and stone fruit. Tart. Too much SO2. Capsicum notes.

This shows a lot more pineapple and a hint of saline/ozone. The combination brings botrytis to mind. The wine is very richly textured with high acid. It is very good, but for this money I'd rather drink Burgundy.

Funky nose that then develops to a more complex and explosive aspect, green apple, litchi, mint, touch of hazelnut, and then a slight varietal and vegetal aspect of the Sauvignon. Palate is crisp, wide, massive but a medium length on day one, day two the wine is so much better, more balanced and in place it seems. Un nez très exhubérant et complexe après un début bizarre un peu, Litchi, pommes verte, touche de noisettes et de menthe, du buis finit par se pointer. Bouche avec beaucoup d’acidité, une certaine amertume, longueur moyenne, au jour deux est bien meilleur avec plus de précision pour monter plus vers 89 pts que 87-88.
