Gilles Lesimple Sancerre
Brilliant and pale yellow. On the nose, nuances of citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon), exotic fruits (mango and litchi), floral notes (white flowers and shrub broom), greener notes (blackcurrant leaf, asparagus), spices (licorice), and mineral (smoky, flint). The initial attack is lemony. It wakes up the taste buds, allowing the perception of spiciness on the tip of the tongue. The second impression shows the suppleness and volume of the wines from the 'stony' vineyards, blending nicely with the mineral vivacity of the wines from the flint soils.
