A Great 94 Point Sancerre (The White’s Terrific, Too!)

No one is making more brilliant white and red Sancerre with this kind of intensity, depth and utterly captivating complexity than Bernard Fleuriet.  His Sancerre Cote de Marloup 2014 delivers plenty of classic Sancerre white fruits and smoky gunflint. But what takes this to another level is the clear scent of white truffle, an earthy/savory note that vaults this Sauvignon Blanc into a league of its own.  And Fleuriet’s 94 point Sancerre Rouge Anthocyanes 2015 is nothing short of a revelation, because I, at least, had no idea you could make Pinot Noir like this so far north of Burgundy.  Deep, dark, rich fruit accented with notes of smoked stones, roasted coffee and spice soar on the nose and pulse on a palate that’s invitingly fleshy and seriously long.  Mix/match for great six- and 12 bottle savings!
