Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Faint aromas of lemon and straw. Medium-bodied, smooth and well balanced with green apple and lime flavours.

Would pair well with citrus-based seafood dishes.

This ain't your mama's Sauvignon Blanc! If you have shied away from Sauv Blanc, I encourage you to give this wine a try.

Monique Sosa reviewed this wine as follows:

A gorgeous floral Sancerre! Aromas show fine citrus blossoms followed by elegant clean green apple, grapefruit and lemongrass notes. I find the buttery mouthfeel particularly attractive. Enjoy this medium-light bodied Sancerre with zesty pesto pasta salads. Tasted May 2018 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light delicate pale straw colour - almost colourless. The bouquet features, grapefruit citrus, lime peels apple stems, fennel and a chalky touch. Flavours are zingy, integrated with crips green apples, lemongrass, light grass and a hint of aniseed spices persisting with a white peppercorns adding some heat at the back. Medium plus acidity, with a light body and finish, minerals carry through. Suitable to pair with herbed goats cheese and caraway infused Gouda. 88 points - tasted May 6, 2018
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a great example of why Sancerre is so highly sought after. It is as complex as it is tasty.
Very pale yellow in colour.
Gunflint, pepper, white peach, and melon.
Fresh flavours of bell pepper, sweat pea, starfruit, petrichor (like when it rains out), and melon.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Apple and citrus aromas with apple, lemon and tropical fruit on the palate. The crisp acidity peaks at the long lingering finish. Would pair well with seafood. Tasted May 2018.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crisp and clean on the palate with flavours of lemon and asian pear followed by subtle white floral notes. This wine would pair well with delicate white fish. Tasted May 06, 2018.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale straw in colour with aromas of peach, white grapefruit, minerality and green apple. It is light bodied with mouthwatering acidity and flavours of white grapefruit, peach and tart green apple. This will go well with soft cheese, green salads, buttered asparagus and seafood. Tasted on May 6, 2018.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine is very fresh with just a touch of creaminess at the finish, which lingers. Initially, green apple and white grapefruit, cut herb, and a lingering note of buttercream. Would be great paired with a simple salad of cucumber dressed in white wine vinegar, salty feta, something with avocado.
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

On the nose, there are juicy peach and green apple aromas, as well as tropical fruit, predominantly pineapple, and mineral notes with subtle hints of vanilla.

It is pretty round on the palate, with tart green apple, peach and lemon flavours as well as mineral notes and a touch of pineapple. It has good acidity and would pair well with chicken in a cream sauce.

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A classic Sauvignon Blanc…
Presentation: A distinctive, art deco label
Appearance: Medium gold
Nose: Medium-pronounced nose with notes of elderflower and asparagus, wet stone and a hint of citrus rind
Taste: Dry, full body, medium-high acidity, citrus rind, calcium, white flowers, herbaceous, and a sharp back end
Finish: long, sour, white fruit and flower finish
Overall impression: A full-bodied classic Sauvignon Blanc. A good representation of the varietal. Will work with summer fare like salads
Value: 3/5
