The white is available at a much higher price in private stores and, generally, if you live in BC and are looking at Sancerre you are looking at whites. So, let’s start with praising BCL for having a lovely red Sancerre, at a price point under $30 (although just), and giving pause to the much higher priced Pinot Noir churned out in BC that can’t compare. Its lightness speaks to rosé. Look at that glorious ruby red in the picture, light as a feather. Gismondi quite liked it, more than us I would say, silky I think was his term, and it does have a perfumed freshness, rose and lavender, with a musky finish. There is a whole red currant grape jelly “thing” on the palate that dissipates into air which makes you take another sip and another. I couldn’t quite wrap my loving arms around it and give it the props the pros have but it is a lovely summer read, er red, a refreshing 12.5% alcohol, dreamy with a Cobb salad, but it was also a one off; not for us.
Price: Around $30 at BCL.
Market Liquidity: Like age appropriate clothing, it has its place.
