Sometimes only the chilled, zesty minerality and elegance of the world's most loved sauvignon blanc will do. Sometimes only the savouring such finely crafted cuvées as those of Sancerre's François Millet.

Here is sauvignon blanc beautifully expressed and from some of the region's most coveted vineyards, where parcels planted around the village of Bué on limestone-rich sites so exceptional, they're often referred to as cru Sancerre. Ones in which Millet realises their full potential.

This means cuvées of wonderfully nuance and complexity made of pristine fruit from vines ageing up to 45 years growing in soils with up to 70% limestone, yielding sauvignon blanc with racy, mineral verve that laces layer upon layer of mouth-watering green apple, citrus zest and tropical fruit.

Tasting note:
This refreshing Sancerre has a fine balance of subtle mineral aromas and hints of newly-cut grass that make for an enticing nose. The palate is one of crisp green apple, citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. The warm vintage has resulted in a luscious style, similar to that of 2018, there's a richness to the palate whilst retaining the all-important hint of minerality and a racy, crisp finish.

A good, crisp, citrus-tasting Sauvignon Blanc with a clean and pleasant lingering flavour. I have been drinking Francois Millet's wines since stumbling upon the village of Bue over 20 years ago and would rate this producer the second best in the whole Sancerre region. Always very well produced from exceptional grapes, the 2019 is presently - in my view - a tad disappointing and needs a little longer in bottle for its classic Sancerre character to shine through, as I am sure it will. My advice,: buy now and lay down for 6 to 12 months.
