White wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "Pierre Morin’s bottling of le Chant de l’Orme is made from a vineyard parcel of fifty year-old vines, with seventy percent of the cuvée barrel- fermented and raised in older casks, and the other thirty percent in stainless steel. The 2016 version is excellent and really starting to hit its plateau, offering up a complex nose of lime, tangerine, gooseberry, chalky minerality, damp grass and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very mineral on the backend, with a fine core, bright acids and very good length and grip on the complex and very nicely balanced finish. There is a textural element on the backend here from the percentage of the blend that has been barrel- fermented, but not aromatic or flavor influence. I like this quite well- particularly for the more challenging 2016 vintage! 2020-2026." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
