The 2013 vintage in Sancerre saw cool, damp weather conditions and a later than normal harvest—among the lastest in the past 40 years. The long winter and cold Spring delayed the harvest, and many growers had to fend off wet weather to bring in their grapes. But surprisingly, the wines are fresh and have plenty of lime and citrus flavor. The acidity is complex, and these wines offer a refreshing contrast to the rounder 2012 vintage. There is a purity that makes these great shellfish wines.
