2018 Maison Foucher Sancerre (Sauvignon Blanc) "Les Hauts Chaillots" Sancerre, Loire, France
The 2018 Sancerre “Les Hauts Chaillots” from Maison Foucher is a good, juicy example of the vintage, offering up a complex bouquet of gooseberry, lime peel, smoke, fresh-cut grass, a good base of soil and a top-note of citrus zest. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and focused, with a good core, fine transparency and a long, tasty finish. This is still a tad on the young side, but is already drinking nicely and will be even better with another six months in the bottle.
