Brilliant water like core with a distinct glimmer of green around the outskirts. Granny Smith apple and lime juice aromas mix with chalky mineral, light herbaceous notes and subtle gun flint. Mouth watering lime and green apple flavours have a crunchy feel with stony mineral, oyster shell and faint grassy characters lying underneath. Very focused it finishes dry with crisp acidity and a taut yet lengthy aftertaste. Quite Sancerre like.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews....
All I can really say is that this is another excellent release. Intensity, texture and length are all spot on. It smells and tastes varietal but not overtly so, or not in the grass/lemongrass/thistle sense. You’d still pick it as SB straight up though, which is to its credit. There’s both a flintiness and a creaminess here but likewise, not in an aggressive way. Indeed nothing is overt here and yet it has excellent intensity. We don’t really need to go into fruit descriptors but those who like a bit of crushed fennel character in their white wine, included here is a bonza example of just that. Drink 2021-2025.
