Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé Mixed Case
Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé Mixed Case
This mixed case includes two bottles each of the following below;
2020 Sancerre 'Les Bouffants', Domaine de la Garenne, Sancerre
From the south-facing, limestone-laden (‘caillots’) soils of the Les Bouffants hillside single vineyard, its mature, 40-year-old vines yield fruit of exquisite richness for a Sancerre of remarkable clarity and depth. Crystalline with tints of gold, it reveals prominent citrus zest on the nose, concentrated apple citrus fruit and a well-defined, classic minerality on the palate. Fine, chalky texture with great length and endless aromatics.
2019 Domaine Chatelain, 'Les Chailloux', Pouilly-Fumé
From caillots to ‘silex’-based soil (quartz/flint), Domaine Chatelain’s ‘Les Chailloux’ single vineyard, across the Loire River, imbues an altogether different minerality in sauvignon. White-gold in hue, with mint and citrus zest on the nose giving way to an intense palate of grapefruit, spice and flinty notes. In terms of sheer terroir, a wonderfully distinctive contrast to Les Bouffants - something in itself a joy when savouring the wines of these great communes.
2018 François Millet, 'Chêne Marchand', Sancerre
From the local village of Bué, and an equally contrasting expression of local terroir. ‘Chêne Marchand’ is a single vineyard and of the estate’s oldest vines on ‘les terres blanches’, which, along with ‘silex’ and ‘caillots’, is the third of three main terroir categories in the region. In Chêne Marchand, a mixture of clay and limestone yields fruit which, when extensively aged on lees as it is here, produces sauvignon blanc of extraordinary richness and length. Here, too, is a delicate palate layered with hints of pear, mango and citrus fruit that leads to tremendous length of minerality on the finish. The hallmark of fine Sancerre.
