"“The 2017 Menetou-Salon from Karine Lauverjat is a lovely example of the vintage, offering up a complex and quite minerally-defined bouquet of gooseberry, lime peel, chalky minerality, white flowers and just a dollop of fresh-cut grass. On the palate the wine is crisp, full- bodied, focused and zesty, with a lovely core, great mineral drive and cut, fine balance and a long, complex and vibrant finish. I really like the structural tension of this wine, with the fruit, minerality and acidity all nicely taut and precise. 2020-2025.”"
