 Tasted by pomelo on 12/3/2013 & rated 87 points: Bof, assez quelconque, sans toutefois être mauvais (1072 views)
 Tasted by ant-1 on 6/27/2013 & rated 85 points: Un sauvignon sympa en apéro mais un peu faible. Peu de longueur, peu d'arômes. Pour le prox, autant boire un bon grec ou un Rias Baixas. (1223 views)
 Tasted by La Cave d'Argent on 5/3/2013 & rated 90 points: This straw-colored Sancerre delivers nice aromatics of pear, citrus peel, apple and spice. It is light-bodied and fresh on the palate, with nicely integrated alcohol (listed as 12.5%) and similar flavors as for the nose. The middle palate is solid and the flavors build on the lengthy, crisp finish. This is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc which holds up well as an apéritif, yet also pairs nicely with light fare. Drink now-2014. (1393 views)
 Tasted by JesseBeckerMS on 4/19/2013: This lovely Sauvignon is from a little-known and under-appreciated producer in the village of Bué. The wine is mainly from a caillottes intensive site known as Le Grand Chemarin but because the appellation rules disallow the use of single vineyard names, Roger uses the phrase "Cuvée G.C" on the label to indicate its origin. The acidic edge that is typical of Sauvignon has been rounded out with fully ripe fruit and the resulting wine is soft and textural with low levels of green pyrazine flavor. Gala apple, white peach and zesty citrus aromas are enhanced by flavors of fragrant apples, blossoms and sweet herbs. A very appealing and easy-to-drink Sancerre and ideal with spring and summer cookery. (1831 views)
 Tasted by Xavier Auerbach on 4/8/2013 & rated 90 points: Named after Le Grand Chemarin, one of the most reputed lieu-dits of Bué, from which this cuvée mainly hails. Aromatic, nice Sauvignon typicity, gooseberry and blackcurrant leaves, clean, pure and precise, white flowers and caillotte minerality, taut but with a lovely core of ripe fruit; acidity is perhaps just a tad low but aromatic persistence is good. Attractive, balanced, refreshing, to be drunk young(ish). (1478 views)
