Ladoucette Comte Lafond Sancerre Blanc 2020 Review

The beautiful bucolic village of Sancerre at the eastern end of the Loire Valley is not the birthplace of Sauvignon Blanc, but — due to the high-draining soils and coolish climate — it has become known to some as the purest expression of this variety. You will find such purity in this wonderful bottle of wine. Drying, chalky minerality is perceived on the nose and carries to the palate. The acidity is gripping and active and just bursts through the wine. This is a great way to introduce yourself to this region.
