Last Thursday afternoon I started my tasting of 2009 whites from Pouilly-Fumé, Quincy and Sancerre with 15 from Quincy. This was the most homogeneous flight with many of them having the typical grassy and citric characteristics of Loire Sauvignon Blanc. Although none showed great complexity, equally there were none that were just too big and fat, lacking freshness as was the case with some of the Sancerre whites.
My favourite wine was from Jean-Michel Sorbe. I also liked the 2009s from Domaine de Villalin, Philippe Portier and Vincent Siret-Courtaud.
