Pascal's cellar of Sancerre dates back to the 1980s and his wines are legendary for their ability to age decades while maintaining freshness. The chalky white silex slopes of Gitton's property create Sauvignon Blanc wines with electricity and ample fruit, balancing suppleness with freshness in a style that continues to evolve over time. These bottles already have three-plus years of cellaring done for you. As good as the 2019 already tastes, expect it to continue gaining complexity.
92 POINTS: JAMES SUCKLING - Gooseberry, lime, nettle and juniper on the nose. It's medium-bodied with bright tangy acidity. Compact, mineral and sleek with saline and spice undertones. Drink now or hold.
91 POINTS: WINE ENTHUSIAST - Fruity, crisp and with good acidity, this wine is just settling into balance. Touches of the wood aging are there along with brightly herbal green-fruit flavors. The wine is rich, with acidity as well as hints of tropical fruits in the background. Drink now.
