  1. Mark Davis

    Blind tasting reveals a clean, expressive Sauvignon Blanc. Medium(+) intense aromas of stone fruit, white flowers, and lemon zest. Dry palate with fresh, ripe lemon/lime fruit. Medium(+) acidity, medium alcohol (13%). Clean, lively, medium(+) long finish. Surprisingly good value. Possibly from California.

  2. Priscilla Morgan

    Decent wine at Nicolas. Sweet stone fruit aromas with citrus and mineral undertones. Simple palate with lemon and white peach, leading to a slightly spicy finish. Not bad for lunch.

  3. Kenneth Bruce

    This wine is dry, crisp, and pleasant. It has a greenish gold color, medium legs, and no sediment. Smells like grapefruit, tastes like lime. Medium body, smooth texture, long finish, and medium acidity.

  4. Mary Allen

    Bright, crisp and lively, this off-yellow white wine boasts a chalky saline nose with hints of lemons, lime and grass. Medium acidity and a crisp finish, with a touch of mineral/saline water. Alcohol content is 13%.

  5. Dawn Mccarthy

    Solid 89-90, well-made with a firm, mineral expression. Light on oak, highlighting grape and region. Good value.

  6. Benjamin Martinez

    Fresh and satisfying with herbaceous notes, tart citrus flavors, and a hint of sharpness. Good typicity, though unremarkable.

  7. Rafael Zbell

    Delicious Sauvignon Blanc with white fruit and grapefruit notes, complemented by straw and green herb flavors. Round fruit with a refreshing finish, perfect as an entry-level Sancerre.

  8. Randall Dean

    Citrus dominance, complemented by fresh herbs. Excellent Sancerre.

  9. Carol Stewart

    Clear, pale straw color with silver rim. Youthful, citrus, apple, pear, tropical notes on the nose. Dry, low tannins, high acid, light body. Sancerre.

  10. James Coronado

    Initial impression was not favorable, potentially due to the pairing. However, the second night proved to be a more enjoyable experience.

  11. Gloria Eggleston

    Delightfully balanced with ripe fruit and refreshing acidity. Absolutely delicious and effortlessly enjoyable.

  12. Bryan Killer

    Delightfully lively Sancerre, effortlessly enjoyed. Dry, hint of citrus, mainly grapefruit. Good, versatile wine, slightly pricey.

  13. Connie Hood

    Fantastic entry-level Sancerre. Crisp, bone-dry, mineralic. Citrus fruit, crushed stone, and verbena aromas. Sophisticated and fresh.

  14. Michelle Oldham

    Deliciously full-bodied rosé! Will definitely buy more from Caviste.

  15. Brandon Goldade

    Initial impression of a buttery chardonnay, which quickly revealed green sauvignon aromas. Crisp acidity, subdued pears, and vibrant apple zest.

  16. Donald Faust

    Delightful entry-level Sancerre. Pear, apple, and exotic fruits shine. Subtle sweetness, harmonized with minerality.

  17. Wayne Green

    Enjoyable entry-level wine with great typicity. Easy to drink and like, with nice acidity, good green notes, and pleasant minerality. Would definitely repurchase.

  18. Steven Parker

    Precise, balanced, and lush. Medium-bodied with notes of apple, plum, honey, and white pepper. Clean finish. Impressive!

  19. Julie Bell

    Excellent Sancerre. Nutty, stone fruit nose with hints of lime. Dry lime and stone fruit flavors, with a crisp finish.

  20. James Taylor

    Intensely dry with lime, straw, green apple, and lemon flavors. Vibrant and tightly wound. Age for 1-4 years.

  21. David Goldsmith

    Delicate hints of honeydew melon, lemon, and quince. A touch of lemon verbena and thyme adds a light herbaceous touch. Slightly unbalanced with good acidity, but the wine is overwhelmed by residual sugar.

  22. Scott Knight

    Well crafted and balanced, this wine offers restrained aromas of green apple, stone fruit, and wet gravel. Medium bold flavors of apple, citrus, and minerality with a creamy texture and high acidity. The finish is long, with citrus and green fruit, enhanced by electric acidity.

  23. Ricky Stokes

    Balanced and smooth, with subtle fruit notes. Oak and minerals dominate. Decanting may enhance the flavors. Less acidic than previous vintages. No distinct “pipi du chat” aroma.

  24. Marilou Daniels

    Crisp, focused Sauvignon Blanc with acidity, minerality, and hay notes. Not too green, easy to drink. May soften with time, but not overly complex.

  25. Kathryn Clanton

    Clear pale golden color, lemon and grass on the nose, crisp and clean palate with fresh acidity. Great with sushi. Would repurchase.

  26. Peter Crothers

    Elegant nose with gooseberries, lemon, peach, and a hint of herbs. High acidity, lime, grape, minerality, and a grassy aftertaste. Not your typical Sauvignon Blanc.

  27. Clark Carballo

    Balanced and fresh with peach, green apple, and floral notes. Medium-bodied with a long, chalky finish. Showing a touch of age.

  28. Danny Crespo

    Refreshing and food-friendly, this pale yellow wine boasts crisp notes of grapefruit, minerals, and vegetal nuances.

  29. Larry Dowdell

    This Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely aroma of blackcurrant and nettles. It has a full body and good acidity, with hints of blackcurrant, pears, and gooseberries. The mouthfeel is slightly oily, and there is a pleasant touch of sweetness. Perfect for summer! Even after a week, it still tastes great with prominent elderflower notes and balanced acidity. Definitely deserving of a higher score.

  30. Paul Lyons

    This wine has a light golden color and a nose of cat’s piss, passionfruit, pineapple, and grass. It has a light body and is crisp, with a good balance of tropical fruit sweetness and acidity. Overall, it’s okay.

  31. Beverly Jurado

    Delicate, refreshing, subtly floral.

  32. Renee Oconner

    Delicate with floral and citrus notes.

  33. Ernest Ishak

    Noticeable saline biflavor, reminiscent of saltwater.

  34. Christopher Mohan

    Crisp, zesty with lemon and grassy notes. Enjoyed it.

  35. John Lake

    Unexpectedly round and soft, akin to a Chablis. Notes of lemon, green apple, and delicate florals on the palate.

  36. Raymond Haley

    A crisp wine with gooseberries, grilled lemon, and elderflower notes. Sharp acidity, very nice.

  37. Johnnie Gallego

    Intensely fruity with vibrant acidity, reminiscent of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Refreshing, but not my ideal Sancerre.

  38. Wendy Taylor

    Delicate and fragrant.

  39. Nathan Durham

    Very nice

  40. Justine Dingmann

    Top-notch vintage.

  41. Tiffany Kelley

    This Sancerre is a lovely, full-bodied wine with a subtle and round development. Notes of gooseberries, ripe sweet lemons, and black currant create a rich flavor profile. Perfect with air-dried ham, smoked ham, and Brie. Ideal for a relaxing evening on the Swedish countryside. Can’t wait to try the 2021 vintage.

  42. Dawn Jackson

    Fruity with gooseberry/white peach notes. Sweet honey note, despite being dry. More body with cellar time, sacrificing freshness. Tasty wine, pairs well with fatty/spicy dishes. Glass: Zalto White.

  43. Pauline Levine

    Delightful!

  44. Betty Adams

    Tropical nose with passion fruit, minerals, and black currant leaves. Best enjoyed from 2022-2026.

  45. Janet Lee

    Rich with gooseberries, ripe apples, and a slight oxidized note. High acidity, zesty tones, green and bruised apples, with a mineral touch.

  46. Holly Mensing

    Classic and well-made with tart citrus, vanilla, and a hint of grass. Not exceptionally unique.

  47. Lois Jackson

    Delightfully balanced with hints of tropical fruit, medium acidity. Perfect with escargot and lobster bisque. Recommended for immediate enjoyment.

  48. Clifford Weaver

    Light golden yellow with a peaches and honey aroma. Balanced acidity with a hint of greenness. Opening brisk sharpness softens with grassy green tones and honey spray. Retains a fine sharpness. Beautiful green tones with young grape and honey spritz. Excellent early stage development. Very enjoyable.

  49. Robert Almen

    Deliciously dry with green apples, melons, passion fruit, and lemon. Fresh with good acidity. A touch of minerals and saline for complexity. Ready to enjoy.

  50. Robert Walker

    Elegant and balanced, this youthful wine showcases yellow apple, lychee, citrus, and white pepper notes. It resembles a lighter Riesling, but with added body and spice. Enjoyable now.

  51. Eleanor Brown

    Café Basque Biarritz’s food: Aromatic, slightly mineral. Very young. Will be much better in a few years.

  52. Larry Anguiano

    Clean, forthright, and very “Sancerre” with a salty nose and a subtly sweet, yet dry palate.
