Dry wines on the big river

Francis Blanchet, Pouilly-Fume, Cuvee Silice 2006 Corked, so who will ever know what to think about this wine.This is all stainless Sauvignon produced across the river from Sancerre. Silice is sourced from an old vine parcel, laden with silex, just up the river in Les Loges. Mis a la propriete a Le Bouchot in Pouilly-Sur-Loire 13% $19.49 at Bottle Barn

Sylvain Bailly, Sancerre, La Louee (Rose) 2007 There are sweet, candied fruit characters to smell, like some lifesavers and there’s lots of vitamin C essence in the mouth, citrus and lots of acidity, very refreshing. This is the latest vintage of rose from the estate. Mis a Bue in Cher 12.5% $20.99 at Bottle Barn
