"Sourced from 40- to 50-year-old vines on deeper and pebbly terres blanches soils, the oak-fermented 2015 Sancerre les Denisottes offers a very clear and fruit intense nose of ripe white (stone) fruits along with lemon and some well-integrated oak flavors with a hint of crushed ripe pips. Full-bodied, round and elegant on the palate, this wine has a charming fruit and a dense, well-structured texture. With fine tannins as well as lingering minerals, this is a very complex though also pretty aromatic wine with almost stewed stone fruit flavors. Although this is an excellent and complex Sancerre, I find it a bit too clean and fruity."
