Reviews and Ratings

Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Finally, the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals found the perfect wine to pair with Carla Bruni's latest album, the elegant, intimate and breathless Little French Songs. Sancerre is sauvignon Blanc of a more restrained variety than the full-frontal fruitidy of the Marlborough New Zealand sauvignon blancs that the Drink Wine and Giggle love so well. Kiwi just doesn't go with Carla Bruni singing...
J'aime crever d'espoir au petit matin blême (I like to burst with hope at first pale crack of dawn)
Et j'aime quand ça roule quand la houle nous prend l'âme (Like the boat rocking when the swell grips the heart).
So beautiful, so crisp, so French.
Craig Haynes WSET 3, FWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Opened this 2011 vintage in Spring 2020. I was quite impressed and, as a result, I will seek out recent vintages of this Loire Valley sauvignon blanc. Understated aromas of wet stone style minerality introduced a stylish medium bodied palate of mouthwatering white grapefruit, tangerine, lime zest and crisp green apple. The mineral notes continue through the elegant finish. Overall a delicious Sancerre.

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.
