Pale yellow. Perfumed nose - lemongrass, honeysuckle. Taste profile was tart, green apple, pineapple and floral.

Have had this before and enjoyed a lot more, but still a solid wine and something I’d drink more of. Gooseberry, grapefruit then tending to pineapple, papaya with grassiness and herbaceous touches in toe. Acidity not as crisp as should be for 16s. Slight phenolics here too

Sauvignon Blanc & I have a dysfunctional relationship...so 8.9 is pretty good from me. Lemon, grapefruit, light honey, medium plus acidity that adds to the finish.

Blend - 1/3 of each soil type. Beautiful balanced nose. Very sunny warm vintage. Sweet, round, but still with mineral. Lower acidity than normal. Balance baby!

Still one of my favorites... consistent sauvignon blanc. Bright, crisp and citrus-y. Light body, light finish. A white stone fruitys but not showy. Just a classic, solid sancerre, vintage after vintage.

Fresh as a warm spring breeze. Citrus, passionfruit, lemongrass, and slate. The latter giving a lovely spine to the whole. Super dry, and acidic. refreshing.

Not a favorite Sancerre... too much acidity/citrus.
