Just OK. Fairly one-dimensional with not much going on other than a rather forceful SB citrus (other fruit?) grassy first move with no follow-up moves. I expected more. This was a low $20’s bottle at Costco. Not recommended. At almost the same price, we VERY much preferred the more deliciously complex ballroom dancer, the 2017 Les Baronnes Sancerre from Henri Bourgeois.
An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing
