Les Baronnes is always reliable. Gooseberry, steely, grassy...somehow manages to be both somewhat opulent and nicelyl refined. Clean, bright and nicely textured from voluptuous fruit attack to mouthwatering lemon tang finish. Was awesome with two separate dinners: fancy pants mussels fettucini in a white wine and butter sauce, and cheap'n'easy comfort food, tuna melts with mac & potato salad.

Very aromatic with pleasant flower and fruit fragrances recalling the flower of the vine and the fruit of the Sauvignon. With mild citrus and minerality, on the palate it reveals a freshness and vivacity characteristic of grapes harvested at good maturity. Drink this as an aperitif or pair it with fish (try a halibut steak in lemon butter), seafood and certain white meats.

Hellgelb, grünliche Nuancen. Holunderblüten und Limetten in der frisch-duftigen Nase, auch reife Aprikosen. Elegante Aromatik nach rosa Grapefruit, gepaart mit einer schönen Mineralik, hervorragende Frucht-Säure-Balance, saftiges, anhaltendes Finale.

There is neither anything ldquo;littlerdquo; nor ldquo;commonplacerdquo; about this wine from Henri Bourgeois, one of our favorite producers of quality Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumeacute;. If I were a betting man, I would wager that it is the child of young vines from the same vineyards that give birth to its two elder statesmen. It is barely disguised as a mini-Sancerre with tangy aromas and flavors of cut grass, snow peas and Granny Smith apple, and the vibrant minerality and acidity characteristic of wines of the Eastern Loire. At half or more the price of Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumeacute;, it is the perfect summer quaff, and would flatter a crab salad or shrimp on the Weber (charcoal, please!). My neighbor Robin, self-appointed wine review critic and reverse wine snob, might think Irsquo;ve been a poseur in this review, but, I assure him, I have meant every word Sancerrely.

Clean aromas of green melon, lime and sugar snap pea are brisk and unpretentious, making for an easy going accompaniment for grilled shrimp.

Mittelgelb, goldene Reflexe. Agrumen und eine deutliche Note nach Feuerstein offenbaren sich im gehaltvollen, Sancerre-typischen Bouquet, auch dezent buttrige Noten. Viel Konzentration im Gaumen: Limetten und Grapefruit, auch Lindenblüten; wiederum deutlich mineralische Akzente; insgesamt von einer tollen Struktur, charaktervoll und langanhaltend.

Helles Gelb, leicht grünliche Reflexe. Intensive Nase von Holunderblüten, Pampelmuse, Limetten. Wiederum viel Zitrusfrucht im weich fliessenden Gaumen, frische Limetten, süsse Ananasfrucht, gepaart mit einer ausgezeichneten Mineralik, tiefgründig und facettenreich. Ein Weisswein, knackig frisch, der sofort nach einem nächsten Schluck verlangt.
