White wine. Loire Valley, France. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Sustainable. "The 2018 Sancerre “Vieilles Vignes sur Silex” from Clément and Florian Berthier is produced from forty year-old vines that are planted on flinty soils (as the name suggests) that are much more common in Pouilly-Fumé than they are in the appellation of Sancerre. The wine offers up a bright and complex bouquet of lime, gooseberry, a touch of grassiness, citrus blossoms and a lovely base of flinty soil tones. On the palate the wine is bright, zesty and full- bodied, with a fine core of fruit, good soil signature, bouncy acids and lovely focus and grip on the long and complex finish. This is really lovely. 2020-2028." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
