2014 Domaine de l'Ecu (Guy Bossard) Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Gneiss, France, Loire Valley - Wine Review

Nuscadets represent some of the best values in the wine world.  This producer is so consistently good and the wines are ubiquitous it seems.  Light golden in color.  The nose is very nice with crushed shells and a nice sea air salinity.  On the palate, great minerality.  There is some lime fruit, but this is about the minerals.  Good acidity.  Nice finish.  Perfect with sea food.  Usually found under $20.  

2016 Jean Reverdy et Fils Sancerre La Reine Blanche, France, Loire Valley - Wine Review

Always one of the better Sancerre's from the home of Sauvignon Blanc.  This one is a bit surprising though.  Blind, I might have guessed New Zealand.  The nose has that gooseberry quality and very fresh.  On the palate, the gooseberry continues thru.  Nice acidity.  Plenty of verve.  Should be great with food.  Nice finish.  Always a nice value.
