Ben says

★★ Great Wine This light lemon coloured Sancerre looks steely from the off. Its aromas are a mix of pithy lemon, nettle and light notes of fennel. On the palate it’s zingy, punchy with a mix of citrus and herb notes like lemongrass and flinty, almost steely on the finish. Bright, fresh and yet long with fruit, this is very accomplished Sancerre.
