Alain Girard Sancerre Rouge French Red Wine 750 mL
Alain Girard Sancerre Rouge French Red Wine 750 mL

"This domaine, which dates from 1875, was run by Alain Girard until 2007, at which point his two sons, Anthony and Nicolas, took over. The property extends over 31 acres, only five of which are planted to Pinot Noir ... This Sancerre Rouge is 100% Pinot Noir; elegant and subtle, it has bright fruit, soft tannins, and crisp yet balanced acidity." - The Importer

91 points Wine Enthusiast October 2017 "This is one of the entry-level ranges from this top producer. The wine is sophisticated. It has a strong mineral texture and fine ripe citrus and pear fruits shot through with acidity. With its finishing fruitiness, this is already an attractive wine..." October/2017

Chateau de Montfort Vouvray Demi-Sec French Loire White Wine
Chateau de Montfort Vouvray Demi-Sec French Loire White Wine
92 points from Wine Review Online:
“It’s worth repeating: The Vouvray appellation is home to an array of fabulous undervalued white wines. A major impediment to their more widespread popularity is the confusion regarding the level of sweetness. And this wine is a perfect example. The label reads “Demi-Sec,” which implies sweetness. But it’s not really a sweet wine because electrifying acidity creates a wonderful tension and edginess. Fruity… yes. Sweet… no.
This is a great choice for flavorful dishes -- either Asian influenced or something like fettuccine and pesto. You’ll get a lot of enjoyment for the price. Don’t miss it.”

Domaine Bernard Fleuriet et Fils Sancerre Tradition 2015 French White Wine 750 mL
Domaine Bernard Fleuriet et Fils Sancerre Tradition 2015 French White Wine 750 mL

"Since 1991, our estate, which was originally a farm, has planted vines on 20 ha of sloped and fallow land in the Sancerre appellation in addition to 3 ha in Menetou-Salon. Divided among 35 parcels, our vines are planted on south or south-east facing slopes in the three main terroirs of the Sancerrois. The three soil profiles - 10% flint, 50% stony calcareous “caillottes” and 40% “terres blanches” (white earth) - are highly representative of the region’s typicity and diversity, allowing us to create blends that boast great complexity and elegant subtlety. Our white wines are made exclusively with Sauvignon Blanc grapes while Pinot Noir is used for our reds and roses. The wines are bottled at the estate beginning in the month of May following the harvest of the white grapes and beginning in August for the reds." - The Importer

Domaine Brochard Sancerre Tradition French White Wine 750 mL
Domaine Brochard Sancerre Tradition French White Wine 750 mL

"This classic white was cultivated on the south, southwest slopes of Sancerre Blanc vineyard located on some of the best hills of the Loire Valley. Sancerre Classique was grown on 30 year old vines in a blend of 40% limestone, 30% flint and 30% clay. This white wine is full of fresh aromas with the unique typicity of Sauvignon Blanc - it is dry and fruity. Grown on three soils, from clay, flint and limestone, it offers a range of aromas, floral and very elegant." -The Importer

This is a lovely and well-priced muscadet that shows defined and nuanced flavours harnessed to bright acidity. It expresses the freshness that makes muscadet such a terrific wine with fish and seafood. Score: 89 (Rod Phillips, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)
