" Pneumatic pressed and gravity-fed, the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel, malcolactic fermentation is blocked, and the wines ages 4-5 months on its lees before being bottled with minimal use of sulphur. The total production of the winery never exceeds 10,000 cases.

About the Estate:
Domaine Pastou is located in the commune of Sury-en-Vaux, a sleepy town located amidst the rolling hills in the Northern section of the Sancerre appellation. Jean-Marc Pastou has been making wine under his own label since the early 1980’s, planting his first vines (now his oldest), in that same year. They hold a total of 12 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc vines in Sancerre, including numerous parcels in the lieu dit of ‘Les Boucaults’ – the bulk of which goes into the cuvee for MSW, hence the name of this bottling.

This wine is a perennial favorite, delivering minerally driven, beautiful Sancerre fruit for an amazingly good price. " ~ Winery notes

5/5 stars
Always a Winner! - This wine has always been a cornerstone sancerre for Empire, and this vintage is no different. A classic...crisp with screaming minerality and citrus. Refreshing on it's own or perfect for your next seafood boil.
5/5 stars
Amazing value - Relatively inexpensive Sancerre that is as good as any and better than some; will order again.

Sancerre 2016 - shared a bottle of this with the wife with a Chinese sweet and sour tempura battered shrimp dish I made. The crisp taste complimented the shrimp very well, however, I enjoyed the 2013 vintage that I drank a month ago even more.
