94 Points, The Wine Advocate

"From a 50-year-old, south- and west-facing vineyard where Jurassic limestone meets Eocene silex, the 2018 Sancerre Les Romans opens with dried white fruit and iodine aromas on the intense and concentrated nose. Very elegant, salty and complex on the palate, this is a powerful and full-bodied yet finely structured and elegant Sancerre, with a long and promising finish. The wine is clearly a 2018 representative but has a long life ahead. Impressive though more warm rather than cool."
