White wine. Sancerre, Loire Valley, France. Sustainable. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "The Ovide bottling from Pierre Morin is one of his old vine cuvées, as these vines were planted in 1950. They hail from the lieu à dit of Les Caillottes in Bué and the wine is fermented and raised in stainless steel and bottled without filtration. The 2017 Ovide delivers a very refined aromatic constellation of gooseberry, lime, orange blossoms, a touch of grassiness and a lovely base of chalky minerality. On the palate the wine is bright, zesty and full-bodied, with fine focus and mid-palate depth, a lovely girdled of acidity and a long, complex and bouncy finish. This should age very nicely, and though it is already quite delicious at three years of age, it should have no difficulties keeping through the next half dozen years or more. Fine juice. 2020-2027." — 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
