Brand Fournier Père et Fils
Alcohol/vol 12.5%
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.

Lime, chive and flint notes give this a racy, detailed feel, with mouthwatering zip on the finish. A textbook rapier Sancerre. Drink now through 2021. 850 cases made, 400 cases imported.

This is an extra-rich wine, concentrated with ripe fruits. It is still young with no holds barred in its power and intensity. With its dense texture and upfront fruit, it needs to age. Drink from 2020.
