    October 5, 2018 - Light golden color. Nose initially some gassy funk per J; with time more peach and tropical fruits, slightly honeyed note. Palate initially some creamy vanilla, as time goes on more lemon/lime and tropical fruits, very high acidity. Would have considered this as a white Burg with the oaky notes at first but more tropical fruits leans towards SB. Very good with slightly spicy cuisine. 92 pts

    September 20, 2018 - zingy-zing, but with a rounded honeyed note seen in those other sancerres, kind of a sauv style mix

    June 2, 2018 - Lots of lemon and citrus with slightly herbal notes. Razor sharp acid on the palate. Demands food. Probably could use a bit more time to integrate and develop but this has a lot of potential.

    April 15, 2018 - Shy aroma with notes of rainwater, dry grass, and a creamy mineral undertone. Crackling acid on the palate with an emerging bitter sweet lemon note at the back and a lingering acid finish. Well put together, but rigorous. Would be good with with Australian fish and chips on a south coast beach. 50 + 16 + 15 + 8 = 89.
