Vera Czerny rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Sauvignon Blanc from Loire Valley to me taste little more delicate than the ones from New Zealand. It doesn't have the strongly pronounced grapefruitty aroma and flavors up in your face.

Still I get a beautiful aromatics of refreshing citrus, lemon grass, tropical fruits and green gooseberries, that reminds me of my parents garden.

This wine is light, fresh and crisp, with a plenty of fruit characteristics and well balanced acidity. What else is good to know about this wine?
It's very packet friendly (courtesy of missing the Sancerre appellation by a tiny bit). Just so you know other (exquisite) wines from Sancerre and/or Domaine Bourgeois are much closer to $ 20 -30 price range and over. Well worth it though!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
