GUEST BLOG / @tomgable--For decades now, journalist, writer, and wine critic Tom Gable has been discovering amazing wines at popular prices. His latest find is from Loire, France, a 2017 Patient Cottat Sancerre Anciennes Vignes at about $20. Unfortunately, wines like these at fair prices and excellent taste don’t last long.
The 2017 has a sharp mid-24k gold appearance with a nose of straw, new-mown hay, and citrus. Mid-body; balanced; good acids and fruit; nice Sauvignon Blanc style for the money; long crisp fruity finish (12.5 alc).
