"Christian Tirot-Fournier of the Domaine des Vieux Pruniers in Bue has rendered a 2009 Sancerre that skirts the problems of noticeable alcohol or acid-deficiency that plague some of its fellow Sancerres of this vintage, although it is possessed of a relatively pronounced and bitter phenolic cast suggesting citrus rind, fruit pits, and bitter herbs that will strike some tasters as too aggressive. Aromas of fresh lime, gooseberry, passion fruit, and herbs lead to a plate that in addition to its piquancy is saline and tartly brimming with gooseberry and red currant, leading to a brisk and invigorating finish. I would plan to drink this probably relatively early-harvested Sancerre within the coming year."
