Item Description

" A classic, minerally-laden, Sancerre from the village of Bué, which is prized for its limestone-rich soils (though not the Kimmeridgean limestone of Chavignol). They are moving toward a more “sustainable” viticulture regime, and no herbicides are used for the majority of their parcels. The grapes are cold-fermented for 15 days in 100% stainless steel tanks. After several months aging on its fine lees, the wine is fined, filtered and bottled at the domaine. Tasting Note: This is a clean, minerally, citrusy, racy style of Sancerre. Aromatically, it tastes like someone took chalk dust and poured citrus oil over it and added a pinch of gunflint. It has good flesh and bracing acidity. Perfect work-horse Sancerre! " ~ Winery notes
