That traditionally beautiful see-through rose red pinot noir. Smells of salt and sand with come cherry. On the palate it is very dry. A kind of salty sense there too. It's not what I think of as smooth or luscious, thought I know Pinots are not the latter. A little shallow.

Derard Boulay 2018 Chavignol Sancerre
You could smell the Sancerre as soon as it was poured into the glass. A very soft rose/lavender perfume. In the glass it also has some citrus. Pale lemon in colour, with a touch of lime, the way limes can be lemon-skinned on tree in long/late ripening. Extraordinary palate of a milky, edged-citrus, later picking up the lavender/floral. A beautifully subtle and sophisticated wine.
