Alain Gueneau 2019 Sancerre "La Guiberte" 750ml
Pale yellow in colour with green and golden highlights. The first smell is discreet with herbaceous hints (nettle, tomato leaves, and menthol). Then the nose reveals notes of elder blossom, citronella, and thyme. Frank in attack, the palate refreshes with its acidulous balance where lemon and grapefruit prevail. On the finish, notes of pears in syrup. Try a perfect marriage of flavours by pairing white Sancerre and Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese.
