"The 2017 Reuilly Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) is more straight and focused than the Quincy, offering a touch of flinty minerality as well as outstanding notes of lemon and citrus fruit, white flowers, and spice. It has notable elegance and is a balanced, vibrant white to drink over the coming 3-4 years."
