Default TN: Fleurie, and a 10 yr old Sancerre (mine great, others poxed)

For our weekly Zoom call, I shucked some oysters to enjoy with the 2010 G. Boulay La Comtesse Sancerre. My bottle was delicious- balanced and fine, fruit blossom nose, citrus fruit accented with chalk and smoke, nice length. I really enjoyed it. However, two of the 6 participants had clearly oxidized bottles (all from the same case). So premox is in Sancerre? Never heard that, but on other hand other than a few Chavignol producers (Cotats, Vatan, Boulay and maybe Thomas-Labaille) I dont know any that people age. But this bottle for me A-/B+
I have more, will see how they show.

With chicken/mushroom bulgogi, the 2016 Chermette/Vissoux les Garants Fleurie. This is pretty tight, best a few hours after opening, but I will hold other for a bit. Black cherries, a little smoked meat note, long and pure. B+

Grade disclaimer: I'm a very easy grader, basically A is an excellent wine, B a good wine, C
drinkable. Anything below C means I wouldn't drink at a party where it was only choice.Furthermore, I offer no promises of objectivity, accuracy, and certainly not of consistency.
