Wine Advocate-Parker :
From 60+-year-old vines, the 2012 Sancerre La Demoiselle is already quite aromatic, though it comes from a silex terroir (flint on flinty clay) which often causes a slower development. Precise, mineral and fresh, with flavors of citrus, orange peels, (field) floral and herbal aromas on the nose this is a rich, multi-layered and ûáthanks to ten months of maturation in wooden vats ûáalmost juicy/creamy Sancerre although it does not get lost on its salty and crystalline road. La Demoiselle is a piquant and mineral-accentuated wine of great expression, tension, depth and elegance. However, I would store it for three or more years, although the nose is already quite inviting.
