2011 Cuvee A'Dair Sancerre

Just a lovely wine all the way around, and a must buy for Sauvignon Blanc fans, especially for $14.79 at Costco. Sancerre is in France’s acclaimed Loire Valley and almost every wine I’ve tasted from here has been excellent.

Big citrusy nose, almost like you’d expect from a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc but in the mouth it takes on a life of its own.  Flavors of lemon, lime, grapefruit, maybe some apricot, all very palatable.  A good dose of acidity as you expect from these wines.  Lovely on the finish.  Super food friendly, probably moreso than the New Zealands.

I really enjoyed this one.  Nothing I would change, and it’ll join our Silver Rated wine list.  Don’t let the label and lack of description turn you away (shameless plug: if you’d like to learn more about the wines of France, check out my pocketbook primer on the subject: Decoding French Wine).
