Food Pairings for Sancerre la Cote Boulay 94 Jg
"This is the first vintage where the La Côte is being bottled by the domaine, which hails from a subsection of the Clos de Beaujeu in the Grande Côte vineyard in the neighboring village of Amigny. This is a stellar new addition to the lineup at the domaine and they could not have picked a more classic great vintage with which to begin!
