Bursting from the glass with lemon sunshine and lime zest. Wow! Racy mouth-watering acidity for seafood and shellfish. This Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley is made from grapes grown in stony and clay soils.

Reviews and Ratings

John Bokelman rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A beautiful Sancerre. Made for Summer
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Compared to other vintages this one is equally as good! Pale lemon green colour with medium plus aroma intensities of grapefruit, apples, gooseberry, apricot, orange citrus with a hint of mineral and yeasty notes. Also a nuance of lees on the nose. On the palate, pronounced flavours of white grapefruit, lemon with some wet stone and minerality. Also a light touch of “cat’s pee” - although faint. High acidity, medium bodied and dry with a long finish. Youthful, crisp and clean. Drink now but has potential for aging.

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.
