Fouassier Père et Fils Sancerre Domaine les Grands Groux 2008
The 2005 Sancerre Les Grands Groux smells bracingly of salted lime, oregano and pennyroyal. Satisfyingly juicy, chalk- and herb-tinged, yet for all of its brightness of flavor curiously soft in texture, it finishes like a refreshing herbal inhalation.Add winemaker's notes

The 2005 Sancerre Les Grands Groux smells bracingly of salted lime, oregano and pennyroyal. Satisfyingly juicy, chalk- and herb-tinged, yet for all of its brightness of flavor curiously soft in texture, it finishes like a refreshing herbal inhalation.
The 2006 Sancerre Les Grands Groux displays lime and grapefruit zest on the nose and corresponding citrus on the palate, accompanied by subtle and attractive hints of mint, scallops and honey. The wine finishes with excellent focus for the vintage and an invigorating combination of zesty citrus and palpable mineral suggestions.
This is a delightful expression of fresh, minerally fruit and crisp acidity. Sancerre is Sauvignon Blanc at its best.
This is really strong, with an intense lemon verbena- and lime-filled palate that bursts forth, pushed by mouthwatering acidity and a long, straw- and flint-infused finish. Offers nice weight for the vintage. Drink now.
This ripe and creamy wine is full of great flinty and green fruit flavors. It is a pure, fresh expression of the chalk soil Sauvignon, with its crisp aftertaste.
This is precise, with great cut to the yellow apple, straw and verbena flavors, laced with fine acidity and backed by a long, lingering flint note on the finish. Drink now through 2012.
This is a nice nervy, crackling version, with strong chive, gooseberry and flint flavors that race through the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2008.
