Lemon zest on the nose and palate of this delightful French white wine. Lovely balance and acidity here in a sun-dappled Old World Sauvignon Blanc. Pure expression of fruit, great mineral intensity.

Sancerre food pairings: oysters on the half-shell, mussels Portuguese, clam linguine.

Reviews and Ratings

From Roger & Didier Raimbault (2016) this is a zingy, lemon citrus Sancerre, a result of a blend of Sauvignon Blanc coming from different parcels of two soil types: "terres blanches" and "caillottes. The Raimbault family have been growing grapes in the Verdigny wine region of France for over 350 years. The 2016 vintage won a Silver Medal at the 2017 Concours des Ligers. - 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.
