A classic, bracing, Sancerre.  Clear and generous aromas of white grapefruit and fresh grass and flint carry through the the palate where the wine starts zippy, turns round, and then finishes with excellent cut and acidity.  Plenty of flint and grapefruit flavors from start to finish in this clean, well delineated, traditionally-styled Sancerre.

Dom Lauverjat Pouilly-Fume 2013 Product #28635 (In Stock)
Dom Lauverjat Pouilly-Fume 2013 Dom Lauverjat Pouilly-Fume 2013

"Fume" - or "smoke" - is the signature of snappy Sauvignon Blanc grown on the Kimmeridgian soils laced with red flint from just across the Loire River from Sancerre.  This is a classic, with aromas and flavors of white grapefruit, lemon, green melon, and Granny Smith Apple and plenty of minerally, smoky, "gun flint" character.  Delicious on its own, but better still with freshwater fish or warm goat cheese salad.

Vincent Delaporte Sancerre Chavignol 2013 Product #29213 (In Stock)
Vincent Delaporte Sancerre Chavignol 2013 Vincent Delaporte Sancerre Chavignol 2013

From the heart of Chavignol, this is a stunning bottle for fans of crushed herb, taut citrus, and lots and lots of gunflint minerality.  But, it’s also for anyone who loves generous yellow/white fruit (think peaches and lime) and length on the palate and finish.  Super delicious Sancerre.

“Hugely herbaceous, this is a crisp, mineral-driven wine that’s so fresh and fruity at the same time, with bright stone fruit and citrus character. Textured with a nervy acidity and a steely core, it could age to round out its corners.”Wine Enthusiast 92 points

“Vincent Delaporte’s 2013 Sancerre shows a wonderful combination of exuberant fruit and the distinctive herbal snap of Loire Sauvignon. It offers lemon, grapefruit and green apple fruit scents are followed by hints of honeysuckle and fresh herbs. The flavors of mouthwatering citrus and apple fruits are backed by subtle floral and herbal hints.”WRO 90 points

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012 Product #29309 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Cote Des Monts Damnes 2012

From the most famous Cru in Sancerre, this is brilliant Sauvignon Blanc.  Cut and crisp but with enough richness to avoid austerity, the layered flavors of citrus, pineapple, and crushed stone sail on and on and on.

"Henri Bourgeois’ 2012 Sancerre La Côte des Monts Damnés could be considered as perfume of the famous Coteau. It is less cumbersome than other Monts Damnés but offers all the flavors that makes this Chavignol Cru so special. It is a mixture of crushed white rocks with almost floral citrus flavors intertwined with the tropical flavor of a fully ripe and juicy pineapple and a refreshing mineral depth. All this gives this wine a precision that makes you sniffing above the glass for a while before you raise it to your mouth. This is a mouthful of rich, intense, elegant, fresh and well-balanced Sancerre that is full-bodied and juicy but by no means heavy, loud or saturating. The lingering salinity in combination with the ripe acidity is very appetizing and gives this complex wine a very good length. Henri Bourgois’ La Côte des Monts Damnés is definitely the wine to start with when you want to discover one of the most fascinating terroirs of the Sancerre appellation."Wine Advocate 92 points

Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Blanc La Moussiere 2013 Product #29201 (In Stock)
Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Blanc La Moussiere 2013 Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Blanc La Moussiere 2013

Perhaps the best ever here.

"La Moussière is the cornerstone of Alphonse Mellot and in its energy and precision it is not only an unmistakable Mellot but also a quality and stylistic level most producers don’t reach rudimentarily. The 2013 Sancerre La Moussière offers very pure, mineral and fresh fruit and floral aromas on the nose, which are neither green nor tropical, but so invitingly subtle, elegant and proofund that you don’t want to name the scents, just enjoy them. (I got fresh and minerally accentuated Riesling-like flavors of white peaches/nectarines and orange peels the second day…) On the palate, too, this is a pure, complex and powerful Sancerre of great personality, finesse and expression. Tightly woven and animating in its vibrant, citric limestone-minerality, this is a serious, fresh and persistent wine and surely one of the finest 2013 Sancerres I tasted for this report. You may enjoy it now and surely the next five or more years. It comes from 55-year-old vines rooted in calcareous marl soils (like the top wines Edmond and Géneration XIX) and was aged for 8-10 months in new demi-muids (one-third) and in vats (two-thirds). And yes, it’s a 2013, which is an excellent vintage for those who love purity and tension in wine."Wine Advocate 94 points

Roblin Sancerre Les Ammonites 2012 Product #28830 (In Stock)
Roblin Sancerre Les Ammonites 2012 Roblin Sancerre Les Ammonites 2012

Matthias Roblin and Emile Roblin represent the fourth generation of Roblins to make wine in Maimbray, a tiny hamlet of Sury-en-Vaux just north of the old walled, hilltop town of Sancerre. Their style - good ripeness, plenty of fruit, and solid (but not overwhelming)  minerality - is on display very nicely here in their top wine from vineyards laced with fossilized seashells (Ammonites).  White grapefruit takes center stage with leesy flint underneath and a pithy briskness to the citrus and mineral finish. Generous enough to sip and excellent with shellfish.

"Spicy citrus and yellow fruits on the nose, with hints of fennel and white pepper adding vibrancy. Taut grapefruit and lemongrass flavors are given depth by a note of bitter pear skin from the oak aging. The finish is firm, linear and refreshingly tangy, with a lovely phenolic ring. This sauvignon blanc showed better on the second day and should improve with another year or two of bottle age."International Wine Cellar 90 points
