Edmond Vatan Clos la Neore Sancerre 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Joel B. Payne (International Wine Cellar): Pale yellow. Fascinating nose opens with lemon balm, then reveals more chalky nuances of mint, gooseberry and menthol with only a hint of smoky herbs and vanilla. Juicy citrus, cassis and pepper flavors are wrapped around an energetic mineral core. The veil of roasted oak is subtle, multilayered and persistent, seeming to float weightlessly over the wine in spite of its rich warmth. Ripe papaya, yellow currant and elderflower linger on the impressively long finish. Unfortunately, this is a Sancerre that few will ever see... one of the finest Sancerres that I tasted for this article and will certainly be far better with a few more years of bottle age. (Sep/Oct 2014)
