2010 Jean-Paul Picard Sancerre

The nose is very nice. Cut grass, lime, citrus flowers, and ginger, plus a touch of nutmeg, form a complex collection of aromas that offers several minutes of pleasure before the first sip. Tart citrus is more pronounced on the palate, but all the others flavors remain. The ginger is the most significant secondary flavor, like a lemon pie with a ginger snap crust. Some leafy herbs and grass show up on the mid-palate. The lemon comes back and lingers on the finish. Drink with garlic crabs. Highly recommended.
