About Domaine Daulny

The name of this domain is a little unfair. In reality, it masks a team effort between Etienne -- the oldest brother in this Sancerre family, who tends the immaculate hillside vineyards -- and his younger brother Bertrand, who oversees the cellar, just as he's been doing since we first met them in 1983.

Expert Reviews

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2009

Subtle, pure aromas of grapefruit pith, pepper and salty minerality; there's something saké-like about the nose of this wine.  Then tactile, spicy and intense in the mouth, with rich grapefruit and ginger flavors and very good zip for a Sancerre from this warm year.  The persistent finish is savory, complex and bracing.

Bought this after loving the 2008. Very similar to the 2008, maybe a bit louder (riper?). Definitely needs a little bit of time to unwind - this will improve for a few years.
Pleasant surprise

Used to the bigger names in Sanceree like Bourgeois and Girard but this was up there. Nice acidity and wondefully smooth.
Apple, Citrus, and Mineral

Pale. Nose of grass, citrus, and apple. Taste of apple and grapefruit. Striking minerality and acid. Persists in the mouth. Well balanced. I like this wine and intend to watch for the next time the producer is featured. It will be fun to see what this does of the next year or two. Excellent.

Sauvignon Blanc

For all of its name recognition and reputation for high-quality plantings and bottlings, Sauvignon Blanc has never been represented in lists or discussions of the spectacular wines of the world. But just because wines made from Sauvignon Blanc are rarely crafted for extended cellaring and don't command staggering sums in international auctions doesn't mean that...
