Guy Saget Perriere Sancerre 2011
Located in the village of Verdigny northwest of the town of Sancerre, in the heart of the upper Loire Valley. 130 acres of hilltop vineyards with deep limestone soil. Temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel and lined concrete vats. Estate-bottled. Dry and crisp, but with plenty of the lingering fruit and fragrance for which Sauvignon Blanc grown in Sancerre is world famous. For many years a Sherry-Lehmann favorite.
As a big white wine drinker, I found this one to be a little bland. While it is pleasant to the tongue on first touch, it leaves a rather dull taste in your mouth.
Pours a medium shade of gold and is cyrstal clear and bright. Huge aromas of white flowers, grapefruit and minerals. Starts off with a nice amount of white flowers and grapefruit. In the middle and on the back end, there are lots of mineral and wet stone undertones. A light to medium bodied Sancerre, this wine is crisp, clean and refreshing, certainly a great value and a nice summer drinker.
