THE REVIEW

With seasonally warm weather, nothing says Summer like Sancerre!
    We can't think of a better white for these warmer months than a Chavignol Sancerre by Gerard Boulay. Drinking a Boulay Sauvignon Blanc is like being hit with a refreshing summer breeze.
    Perched on the northern tip of Sancerre are the unique white limestone slopes of Chavignol, the finest Sauvignon Blanc growing region in the world. Often compared to the Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy for its unique limestone based soil, Chavignol is a field of chalkly white stone that produces some of the most elegant whites that are immensely complex and outright delicious.
     With uncanny freshness and bright citrus minerality, Boulay's Sancerre displays classic gooseberry and lime zest aromas which mingle with notesof minty herb, stone, almond and white flowers. On the palate the wine is pure with a solid core of fruit, grapefruit, mandarin orange, lime and wildflowers. But what really sets it apart is its mineral-infused personality. Excellent focus, racy acidity and a long, mouth watering finish is this wine's trademark.
    Sauvignon Blancs from Sancerre are arguably the most freshing whites made. Enjoy this Sancerre with your favorite seafood dish, especially oysters - either raw or broiled with garlic and breadcrumbs. While irresistible now, this sensational white can be held for another five years at which time it will gain a bit of flinty, honeyed complexity. Enjoy!Read More »
