89 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2011
Pale straw-gold color. Ineffable perfume of musky grapefruit zest,
tangerine, linden flower and brown spices. At once weighty and
penetrating, with lovely bright acidity for the year. The finish offers
sneaky length and intensity, with a solid stony backbone giving it a
youthful reserve. I'd plan on enjoying this wine next summer.
this is a diamond inthe rough.
This is an excellent wine for the price, especially with the weight and length on the palate. I think this wine should be 92-93 pt wine. The 2008 is drinking excellently now. I love the lychee and grapefruit a little Viogner-ish..
Crisp and delicious
Beautiful wine, good thing I stocked up with several cases for summer. Light and crisp in a classic Sancerre way, a worthy addition to the wine cellar.
Great taste at great value
Fresh, crisp wine to drink at any occasion at Avery good price.

Already went through 6 bottles in 2 weeks. I think my wife likes it:)
Subtle citrus notes, minerally and crisp....refreshing!
Loved it. Great everyday drinking.
This is a lot better than I expected, and taking another look at the price, there really isn't any way I can touch this quality and price point at my local retailers (who are very, very good). Glad I got the full case!
Three Chenes worth four stars
Leaped at the opportunity to obtain a few of these based on our experience with the'08 of which I only got a couple as a topper (pity). First impression is that the newer vintage is not as bracing and crisp, which was a characteristic of the '08. Nonetheless, much to be cherished and enjoyed in this example of terroir-driven wine making. Pale straw color, wet stones on the nose, primarily grapefruit and star fruit on the palate, minerality by the score, some residual sweetness.
Love the fresh, green fruit and mineral balance. Needs a good chill, but hard to beat at this price.
very fresh tasting. good nose. good buy for the price

With the exception of Sancerre, which has been a hot item in the U.S. market in recent years, Loire Valley wines are among the most underappreciated of France. The wines made from vineyards alongside France's longest river are aromatic, brisk, and generally..

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...
