Well done for the pricepoint. Very textbook, although a little flabby given the vintage. More appeal for American drinkers. 2011 is a good crossover vintage for the Loire. Very ripe, with a dulled sense of terroir. In any case, being American, I enjoy the richness. Lots of gooseberry, anise, asparagus. 13 percent abv here which is higher than previous vintages. Round mouthfeel. Medium body without the tart acidity of previous vintages.
