Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh and invigorating! White peach, soft light minerals, clover, guava, graphite and pineapple skins. Flavours reveal intertwining grapefruit citrus, starfruit, white asparagus and salted olives. The high bright acidity balances cleanly with a crisp refreshing finish. Bone dry and brisk with thyme herbal influences lingering. This is a perfect salad wine, add some goats cheese for an instant savoury smash. 89 points - tasted May 4th 2018
Produced by François Millet, this Sancerre from the Loire wine region is fresh and crisp with lime/lemon zestiness. Domaine Des Côtes Blanches is racy with fresh herbs and on the nose and palate. Pair with seafood or spring greens salads. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
