A beautifully aromatic Sancerre, juicy, lime cordial, abundant wild flowers and candied lemon. An incredible range of flavours with some new world inspiration and old world charm. Quite dynamic with a terrific progression of flavours and very good length. Score: 89 (Sara d'Amato, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)

Nice purity of fruit on the nose and palate but also has some Minerality with excellent length.
