Good Sancerre under $20 is unheard of, until now!
There is nothing like a great Sancerre in the summer. Clean, crisp and ultra refreshing, these wines offer up world class Sauvignon Blanc ... for a price far less than you might expect when stacking them up against many other premium white wine options.
Case and point, based on sheer complexity and style, the 2017 Alban Roblin Sancerre acts more like a $30-$40 white ... instead of what it actually costs.
What makes Sancerre different than any other style of Sauvignon Blanc?
Sancerre is the premiere appellation in the Loire Valley, where what some consider, the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Unlike other regions where Sauvignon Blanc is grown, Sancerre is most known for the high levels of Limestone soil that keeps the wine very minerally.
Exotic white flower, dried apricot, and mineral aromas swirl out of the glass. It is bright and crisp with a supreme minerality that Sancerre is known for. On the mid-palate it features a soft, white peach flavor that envelops the mineral spine and rounds out the body of the wine. It finishes with a richness and longevity that seems to coat the palate for minutes. Every sip is exquisite.
"Pale yellow color, bright and beautiful brightness. The nose reveals aromas of white flowers, boxwood and citrus. The palate displays a dynamic attack with a beautiful expression of yellow fruits and a very elegant mineral aromatic return. Expressive wine, well balanced."- Winery
