We visited this tasting room in the heart of Sancerre in June, 2014. Although I’d booked a personal appointment well in advance, no tour was offered and we simply did the regular tasting with their store employee – who was Portuguese and spoke no English. Now that was interesting.. Thankfully she spoke French so between the two of us and my third language, we got through it.
This bottle traveled home to Canada with us. A classic Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc, it is pale lemon with a nose of crushed rocks, quince, Asian pear, lemon balm and flint.
The palate is dry with juicy, high acidity and flavours of lemongrass and wet rocks with pear and more quince on top of silex.
The electric minerality of this complex, delicious wine makes it WSET Very Good. We paired it with fresh spot prawns.
