Fouassier Sancerre Les Grous 37.5cl 2016
This beautifully aromatic, biodynamic Sancerre shows lovely notes of citrus, melon, fresh herbs and a touch of minerality.
What we say
Round and fresh at first and then almost tannic with increasing acidity. This wine would go perfectly with shrimp, grapefruit salad and goats cheese.
What they say
Nose of ripe apple and notes of honey, a touch of lemon and hot stone. Round and fresh mouth with a refreshing long and tasty finish which recalls grapefruit peel.
