Broad and fresh aromas - actually quite floral too. Direct and mineral - this is a wine with a modest mineral austerity with gooseberry fruit and good acidity. I like the shape and style of it - it's very good. It's a less ripe vintage - more Nordic!

This has an initially dusty nose with aromas of crushed stone, dried apple, grapefruit zest and blanched almond. It's medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Gently waxy texture. Drink now.
- Saint-Bris Sauvignon 2018 - USA Wine Ratings - August 2021- Bronze Medal
A zesty nose, that has notes of ripe and juicy citrus and a fruit salad aroma. The wine is tropical on the palate with nuances of guava and pineapple.
