Eric Louis – Les Celliers de la Pauline 2016 – Sancerre

The nose is fruity and aromatic. It reveals notes of lemon, mandarin flowers and exotic fruits associated with slight hints of minerality and white flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, silky, slightly « perlante » (very slightly sparkling, on the attack) and offers minerality, a beautiful acid frame, suavity as well as a nice freshness. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon and exotic fruits (quenette, passion fruit, hint of papaya) associated with slight notes of ripe mandarin, mandarin flowers, lemon flowers as well as a discreet hint of minerality and a subtle/very discreet hint of yuzu zests (in the background). Good length.
