Domaine du Piton A Sancerre

Le Piton Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Star bright pale straw. Inviting nose of stony lime zest. Medium light palate yields lime (the fruit), lime (the mineral), and green apple peel supported by striking firm acidity from entry to moderate finish. Jolivet acquired this small (8 hectares) property in 2015 and the investment is definitely paying off. This is a premium Sancerre from a top producer that’s ready for shellfish, sushi, or soft cheeses (I’m having Professor’s Brie and two others). Drink now through 2025. — 8 days ago

L'Enclos De Maimbray Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Bright and fresh acid without any mouthwatering pucker. Only have the faintest hint of ammonia but definitely some crushed lemon and mineral flavors. Went deliciously well with blackfin tuna seared in sesame oil and rice wine vinegar. — 9 days ago

Francois Le Saint

Silex Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Lime zest, lemon pulp, grapefruit highlight a lean, mineral core. Crushed stone and a lingering salinity rounded things out. — 7 days ago

Sancerre Pinot Noir 2018

A rarity from Sancerre, only about 10% or so of wines are “red.”Ruby with aromas of red fruit and earthy spice notes. On the palate cherry and cranberry, herb spice wrapped in vivid acidity. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit and earthy mineral notes. Nice! — 12 days ago

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The Kimmeridgian terre blanche soils of La Cote made me initially call this Chablis on the nose alone. Yet on the palate the concentration, low acidity, slight off-dryness revealed this was something else. Suspecting old vines and high ageing potential which will offset the off-dryness better. Great start of an epic evening. — 15 days ago

All prior notes apply. Really good, tilting towards a hint of sweetness at the end. Worth half a case investment. Best enjoyed now. — 15 days ago
