Gerard Boulay has become an essential source in this village for rock solid, exceptionally transparent Sauvignon, with wines that display tension, length and longevity. They are as complete as anything produced in Sancerre today. His wines marry the intensity and complexity of Chavignol's other noteworthy producers, the Cotats andamp; Vatan, to a nerve and grace akin to the very best of Chablis, which shares the same Kimmeredgian soils as Chavignol. For all the immediate joy that they can give in their youth, they are truly at their best with a few years of bottle age. This isandnbsp;from several plots of older vines over about 4 hectares on the slopes above Chavignol. Aged entirely in stainless. A compact, pure andamp; direct expression of the village and the house style, and a top value as well. Will age beautifully over the near term if you can resist it.
Really quite pleasant. Typical light style from Chavignol. Just a touch of sweetness on the back end. Would definitely buy again for the price point.
