Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre is very good. It opens with a mild gooseberry bouquet with hints of wet stone and Anjou pear. On the palate, this wine light bodied and displays some nice brisk acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty tart yellow grapefruit with integrated minerality and ripe lime. I also detected hints of tangerine. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. This Sauvignon Blanc would pair nicely with grilled swordfish skewers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale gold with green hints. Very expressive, intense and complex nose with boxwood, rhubarb, blackcurrant, kiwi fragrances and a light vegetal touch (marigold). The entry is soft and round. Bright freshness on the palate, delicate and lively purity. Well balanced and harmonious, it ends with a clean lingering finish. As a young wine, it is a superb aperitif served at 10 C and a marvelous companion for shellfish.
