    I think you should compare wines from the same vintage OR discuss concisely what some of the differences were in each vintage/location.

    Let’s give another couple of Sancerres a try. This is an underappreciated wine and I would like to have a couple of new recommendations.

    Hello !

    Well, I am becoming a fan of your tastings ! Funny enough, you have such a different way than mine to connect with wine and still, very close taste !!

    One thing about this blind test. I am from France and I go to Sancerre every year for tasting (among them, I tasted Boulay). Clearly, 2007 is a very, very acid and mineral vintage and Boulay is the kind of winemaker who in addition produces wine to be drank in… 15 to 20 years. I am not surprised at all that you did not like the wine, I do believe they need a minium of 5 years to start openning. I remember very well that the 2007 by François Cotat (Cotat and Boulay have are very close in the way to make wine and on the same terroir) were almost impossible to taste when I went there in 2008. After one year, the evolution is stunning… but they remain still very tight wines . However, I can bet that in 10 years, those Sancerre will rock you ! Probably a 90+.

    If we could meet, I could make you taste for instance 1995, 1997 or even 2000… they are… well… heavenly !
