PnP, served non blind. Pale toward straw color. Really quite grassy at first, with melon and gooseberries just behind the initial blast of grass, hay and white pepper. Settles down by the second glass, as does the palate, as if to say there's just not a lot of depth or strength to the vintage. Light(+) body. My mind wanders though, and I find myself anxious to taste the 2012. Instead of a house style SB, the growers let the fruit speak for itself, with little to no manipulation showing anywhere in the wine. This could never be mistaken for Sancerre, but it's not baked valley floor fruit, either. For that, I'm thankful, and again, I look forward to the next vintage.
