Reviews and Ratings

Lovely lemon brightness and energy. Mouth-watering gusher that cries out for shellfish or fried chicken. OTHER: Château de Fontaine-Audon is one of only four châteaux in Sancerre. Aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry, and stony minerality accented by a lifted floral tone. Crisp and fresh with excellent replays and a good length. This will be a wonderful sipper. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, June 2013. OTHER: The 2016 Sancerre Fontaine-Audon (100% Sauvignon Blanc) comes all from silex terroirs and was brought up entirely in stainless steel. It offers a beautiful sense of minerality to go with clean, crisp notes of citrus fruits. With medium to light body, a great mid-palate, and a layered texture, it's one classy Sancerre to drink over the coming couple of years. Drink Date: 2018-2020. Score - 90 (Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, March 15, 2018). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
