Gerard Boulay Sancerre Comtesse 2020


In Stock

“A hallowed wine from a tiny parcel on the Monts Damnés hill, the 2020 Sancerre Comtesse is an elegant yet sweetly fruited expression offering a distinctive and youthful array of fruits from melon to pear and nectarine. While pure and precise, there’s a sensation of sweetness, which seems to come from a combination of the oak, the ripeness of the fruit and the high alcohol; it’s a little hot on the finish, somewhat diminishing its otherwise refined personality. At the end of our tasting, Boulay mentioned the wines had been open for several days before my arrival, and I will endeavor to taste fresh samples. Drinking window: 2022-2033. 91 points”
