TASTING NOTES
Clear and bright in appearance with green highlights, Sancerre Tradition is a classic expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the limestone rich soils of the central Loire Valley. Aromas of grapefruit and quince are complimented by notes of gun flint and wet stone. On the palate the wine is medium bodied with mouthwatering acidity and great depth of fruit. A persistent and balanced finish indicates that this wine will hold up in bottle. 2015 is a legendary vintage for the Loire Valley!
