Tasting Notes Pale gold with pronounced yellow highlights. The lovely, clean aroma exhibits depth and fruit maturity, suggesting ripe pear, star fruit and lemon. The taste is immediately rich and fat for Sancerre, with above-average weight, framed by a backbone of ripe acidity. The finish possesses attractive complexity, with intriguing dusty and herbal notes, and a long aromatic signature. This is an elegant, nuanced Sancerre, and it deserves elaborate, refined cuisine. -RB
