The Oddbins Take

For this tasting note, we’d like to pay homage to the greatest television show in the history of motion picture, The Great British Bake Off. Not only is it a faultlessly entertaining hour of television but it’s also taught us so much, for example, that it seems Noel Fielding is able to act relatively normal for an hour a week, before an impression of a Victorian Cockney Gangster with a giant polo encircling his eye bursts out of him like avant-garde appendicitis.

It also taught us to not over egg the pudding, otherwise your cake will be rubbery and suffer from ‘soggy-bottom syndrome.’ Advice that Pierre-Jean Sauvion took onboard when vinifying this Sancerre. He doesn’t over-press, over-extract or smother the wine in oak, covering up the classic aromatics. Pierre-Jean just lets the purity of the fruit speak for itself, displaying distinct notes of gooseberry, grass, elderflower and blackcurrant leaf that resolve to a long steely finish. Dare we say it deserves a famous Paul Hollywood handshake…
