91 points "Color: pale; Aromas: citrus fruit; Sweetness: dry; Finish: persistent; Strapping acidity, I thought this might be Romorantin because of the high acidity. The nose is that grassy, herbal Sauvignon nose that gives no hint of the acidity to follow. Flinty, citrusy notes, maybe some grapefruit. I really like it because is has the acidity of the New Zealand Sauvignons but does not have that bitterness I sometimes find comes from those wines. I really think the Loire whites, no matter what the grape, are undeappreciated values and this is sure one of them."
