Daniel Chotard 2010 Sancerre

We stopped by Crush Wine bar for a quick glass of wine. I was shocked at the price they charge for wine by the glass. The glass costs about 80% of the price of the bottle in the LCBO. While I am use to paying high prices for wine, for me this was especially high. I digress.

Sancerre as you may know is a region in France whose white wine is 100% Sauv Blanc. Pale in color with a lovely grassy nose. On the mid pallet the wine is nice and grassy, matching the nose. On the medium finish the wine has some nice acidity that builds nicely in the mouth. This is a VERY nice traditional Sauv Blanc. Yummy. I’d give it an 89-90. Unfortunately not in the LCBO. I think places like Crush do this on purpose so you don’t have a clue just how much you over paid for the glass … Looks like about $25 a bottle outside Canada. The glass was $15 at Crush.

The winery web site says:
Blanc : (Sauvignon Blanc) Aged on the lees – brilliant pale yellow in colour – very pure nose reminiscent of citrus and white blossoms – refreshing and full-bodied on the palate – typical and elegant, well-balanced with good length – serve at approximately 10°C with saltwater and freshwater fish, seafood, white meats, and crottin de Chavignol goat’s cheese
