External Reviews for Fouassier Sancerre
100% Sauvignon Blanc balanced with a delicate touch of oak. Lavish ripe grapefruits and lemon-lime crispness. Try with the dressiest of fish or a favorite recipe for seafood chowder.
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.
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.
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.
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 a nice nervy, crackling version, with strong chive, gooseberry and flint flavors that race through the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2008.
Made from old vines, this ripe, intensely fruity wine has flavors of green plums and gooseberries to go with a firm, tight structure that promises a couple of years aging.
