This may just be this bottle but the wine was not a typical Sancerre and had too much orange fermentation going on

Description: Light gold in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features orange rind, fermented orange, dried apricots and capsicum. Medium+ body with average acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: Maybe past its prime

Drink now on its own or pair it with mussels in a white wine butter garlic sauce

Tasted: 31 Aug 2014

Score: 8+/10, Value: 8+/10 Total: 16.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3+
