Paul Prieur la Comète Rouge L. France Vin de la Vallée de la Loire Sancerre 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Helles Gelb, leicht grünliche Nuancen. Tolle Sauvignon blanc-Aromatik nach rosa Grapefruit, Litschi und floralen Noten, sehr elegant komponiert. Agrumen und grüner Apfel zeigen sich im Gaumen, auch mineralische Akzente (Feuerstein); harmonisch abgestimmte Frischenote; finessenreiches, von einer Zitronenminze-Note begleitetes Finale.

One of the better Sancerre wines. Light, crisp with a complex second note.

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 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.

Whether you're a seasoned Sancerre drinker or not, this is a fabulous example of a Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. It's classic in style: steely, dry with an abundance of minerals and citrus fruit.

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.

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.

Floral peach and lime aromas turn earthy on the finish, supported by juicy acidity. Its ripeness and alcohol give it a fair bit of weight, calling for a roasted chicken.
