What experts say  
  86/100 "Crisp, with thyme, sel gris and lime notes, showing good zip through the finish. Not big but refreshing. Drink now." (Previous vintage)  
  "The Fournier offer a typical Sauvignon Menetou, where the grape is expressed through a nose full of boxwood, juniper and blackcurrant bud. The mouth is in unison, varietal and vivid. Perfect for a seafood platter" (Previous vintage)
