Enjoyable but wait for it to be on offer.
Light and crisp with a complexity that doesn’t initially reveal itself. Give it a longer finish on the palate and it blossoms with fragrance and a touch of elderflower. Not sure it justifies it’s hefty price tag but if your in the privileged position to not think twice then we’ll worth it.
Excellent example of Sancerre
Having rediscovered the Loire after a flirtation with NZ SauvBlancs, I've no problem paying this price for a wine of this quality. As I type, my wife and I are I'm half way down a bottle with some smoked salmon - a match made in heaven. Four stars rather than five because Sancerre rarely scores highly in the value for money department, and for a Loire, Tesco's LaCheteau Touraine is also excellent at a more 'quaffable' price.
Very good quality Sancerre wine
Bought 6 bottles of the wine in-store. Very happy of this wine. Great fruitiness, nice crispiness. Enjoyed very much the quality of this wine. Maybe the best Sancerre I have ever tasted.
Will buy again.
Excellent value, taste, quality, & really enjoyed drinking this.
A little disappointed in comparison
Was a little disappointed with tesco brand as was on the Sharp side compared to my normal glass of sancerre
One of the best whites I have tasted. I like a light, not oaky white - some may not like that but for me it is absolutely perfect. A clean, pure wine - no hint of headache the next day if one too many glasses drunk!
I like the cool fresh fruity taste of this wine with smoked salmon &horseradish
Truly Finest Sancerre
A superb classical Sancerre and a refreshing conterpoint to New Zealand Sauvignon. The colour is pale lemon-green, with a complex nose of candied and ripe citrus fruit and white flowers. The palate is well-rounded and precise, with keen acidity (this is Sancerre after all) but with the gooseberry and lemon fruits coming to the fore. Overall, this is a well-poised and elegant Sancerre, which reminds us that France can still compete in the Sauvignon Blanc stakes. I tasted this alongside Malaysian Chicken Curry which worked reasonably well, but I think the supreme match would be simple baked white fish. Fantastique!
I'm surprised by the negativity from some other reviewers. I found this to be exactly what it should be - full of wonderful fruit, with 'just right' minerality. This is the subtle end of the Sauvignon Blanc spectrum - a million miles from the brash New World versions - but quite delightful in its Old World charm. I would definitely recommend it.
Good quality at a good price
I have come to recognise the Finest range as being solid and reliable, and at a sensible price. This Sancerre just confirms my views!
