Tasting Notes:
rated: June 27, 2011 , Stephen Tanzer (IWC)
91 points "Pale orange. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of strawberry, orange zest and white flowers, with mounting spiciness. Dry, nervy and powerful yet carrying no excess weight, offering energetic red fruit and bitter citrus flavors and a chalky element. Clings with impressive clarity on the long, sappy finish. I really like this wine's balance and intense minerality.”" Best 2011-2021

90 points ""The 2010 regular bottling from Gerard Boulay is a lovely example of the vintage, and as is often true to this cuvee, it is tightly wound and will repay with a bit of cellaring. The deep, complex, and extremely mineral nose offers up scents of lemon, grapefruit, a touch of smokiness, gentle grassy tones, and kaleidoscopic minerality. On the palate the wine is medium-full, tight, and very long, with an excellent core of fruit bound up behind the girdle of acidity, excellent focus, and superb length and mineral drive on the backend. While certainly approachable now, the 2010 Sancerre from Gerard Boulay will be ever better with a year or two of bottle age. High class Chavignol! 2012-2020." - 90+ Pts " Best 2012-2020
