Wine Advocate 87 points - Coming as usual from the oldest vines in his Terres Blanches holdings; raised half each in tank and barrique (tasted separately in April); and due for bottling just prior to harvest 2012, Thomas- 2011 Sancerre Ultimus projects considerably more bitterness and opacity than his -regular- Terres Blanches bottling, though also a formidable sense of chalky density. Roughly three grams or residual sugar will remain in the final blend, the notion being that this will help assuage the wine’s bitter tendencies, though I don’t find that this sugar contributes any special synergy. Ripe pear and pink grapefruit with pronounced contribution from its rind inform a palate impressive in its expansive, opulent way; and a saliva-inducing hint of salinity enlivens the persistent finish. (Jun 2012)
