Vincent Grall – Le Manoir 2017 – Sancerre

The nose is aromatic and offers a small richness, gourmandize as well as minerality. It reveals notes of crushed nectarine, apple and small notes of exotic fruits associated with touches of ripe citrus (lemon, mandarine), a hint of ripe pink grapefruit zests as well as discreet hints of flint and white flowers. The palate is fruity, generous, full, elegant and offers a small unctuosity, straightness, a good guideline, a beautiful balance, a beautiful acidulous frame/citrus, a good definition, precision, far, a very finely tight grain as well as a small tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed/fleshy brugnon, fleshy pear and small notes of exotic fruits (quenette…) associated with fine touches of ripe citrus as well as a very discreet hint of flowers (in the background). A beautiful wine!
