Wine Spectator 90
"A focused, brisk style, with a flinty frame around jicama, gooseberry and herb notes. The chiseled finish shows good tension.”
" This cuvée comes from a total of 3.7 hectares of vines all over 50 years old. Total production for this cuvée is under 2000 cases. The wine is fermented with natural yeasts in temperature controlled steel. It rests for 4 to 5 months on the lees - with 1 or 2 lees stirring. 2017 is a classic vintages for the Loire Valley!"
Current owner and winemaker Hélene Mardon is the 5th generation of her family to make wine in Quincy. With some of the oldest holdings in all of the Loire, they are undoubtedly the top producer in the appellation. The village of Quincy is located about 50 miles west of Sancerre on the left bank of the Cher river and has composed of more gravel and sandy river debris, yielding a particularly juicy and minerally Sauvignon Blanc. 50-80 year old vines made and aged in tank.
The village of Quincy is located about 50 miles west of Sancerre on the left bank of the Cher river. This lesser-known Loire Valley appellation is an excellent source of crisp, driving, minerally Sauvignon Blanc.
The Mardon family has been producing wine in the area since the early 19th century and it is nearly indisputable that they produce the best, most serious, most complex Quincy available. It is a small, family owned estate with the cellar literally below the house and a total annual domaine production of under 10,000 cases. Their “Tres Vieilles Vignes” cuvée, bottled especially for Daniel Johnnes, is made from vines that exceed 50 years of age and up to 80 years old, and it rivals many a top Sancerre for sheer fruit density and depth.
Domaine Mardon is not certified organic but does not use and herbicides and plants grass between its rows of vines. " ~ Winery notes
