Brilliant pale straw colour with a faint glimmer of green around the outskirts and a watery hue. Herbaceous grassy scents mix with ripe limes and green apple followed by subtle asparagus and stony notes. Light across the palate, flavours of lime infused with fresh herbs have a delicate grassy asparagus and wet slate back drop. There’s a subtle stoniness to the mouthfeel finishing dry with vibrant acidity and a medium length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews….
When I lived in England towards the end of the last century, Sancerre was quite the thing. I like it. Used to drink the odd bottle too. Good with fish and chips.
Altogether classic. White nectarine and gooseberry, brine and blackcurrant, a little rub of nettle. It’s fleshy and flavoursome, but not overt, discreet, gently creamy and chalky, a bit of the old ‘mineral’ and crushed rock, passionfruit and grapefruit on a composed and pretty long finish. Delightful.
Drink 2020-2023.
