Wine Advocate - 92
The 2016 Sancerre Satellite assembles the fruit from different lieux-dits and soil types of Chavignol and opens with clear, intense and well-concentrated fruit with herb notes on the bright yet deep and very elegant nose. Full-bodied and dense on the palate, with mild, perfectly interwoven acidity, a lingering phenolic grip and fine salinity, this is a perfectly matured Chavignon classic with substance and first hints of maturity. However, the wine is so stable, dense and firm that you can enjoy it for the next 5, maybe even 10 years. Tasted in January 2021.
