Blason-Louis Sancerre 2012 (Flacon)

Blason-Louis Sancerre 2012 (Flacon)

A new and novel offering from Blason Lewis—these flacons are the equivalent of a 3.5 oz glass. Robed in bright translucent ruby, the 2012 Blason Lewis Sancerre is fresh and vibrant, boasting aromas of red currants, raspberries, pie cherries, and damp earth. In the mouth, fine tannins and bright acidity add lift and structure to this charming Pinot Noir that unfurls to reveal a mineral-tipped vein of nimble acidity at the close. 13.0% ABV | Sample Blason-Louis 8.9 Points...

Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 2014

Domaine Vacheron Sancerre 2014

Stunning and vivid, Domaine Vacheron's 2014 Sancerre is golden-robed and inlaid with lemongrass, lemon blossom, kaffir lime, banana creme pie, lychee, smoke and a nuanced herbal edge. Texturally round and lush on the palate, gloriously disrupted by a piercing vein of white grapefruit and chalky minerality that carries from the attack to a meandering, mouthwatering finish. Delicious with grilled oysters. 9.1 Points...

Claude Riffault Les Boucauds Sancerre 2013

Claude Riffault Les Boucauds Sancerre 2013

Claude Riffault's Sancerre Les Boucauds 2013 is sourced from old vines grown in clay and limestone rich soil. Half of the wine is vinified in stainless steel, the other half in oak, and the results are rather spectacular. Les Boucauds is one of the more intense Sancerre's I've tasted of late, the nose fairly explodes with star fruit, guava, mango, and ripe nectarine. Lean and racy on the palate, with sleek tension, staggering acidity and length accompanied by a full range of complex fruit notes and chalk. Oh my! Domaine Claude Riffault 9.0 Points...
