The SANCERRE WHITE WINE AOC 2013 comes exclusively from the SAUVIGNON GRAPE variety which is cultivated on 16 hectares (¾ Caillotes, ¼ Terres Blanches). As soon as harvested, the white grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and separated from the musts. The temperature during the fermentation is carefully controlled to give the wine bloom and elegance. The fermentation is made thanks to a fermenting starter of natural yeasts. Musts are regularly pumped over, then blended and after fined over bentonite. It is then cooled to avoid tartaric sediment and filtered through Kieselguhr. TASTING NOTES Appearance: Pale yellow crystalline appearance with occasional green flecks. Nose: The initial impression on the nose is one of discreet intensity with varietal fragrances opening out into aromas of blackcurrant leaves and floral notes of limeflower and verbena. Upon aeration, notes of acacia are revealed. Palate: The lively attack on the palate brings a refreshing acidity, enhanced by nuances of citrus fruits and hints of peach. The mineral finish adds balance to this characteristic and harmonious Sancerre. Excellent terroir wine: rich and sophisticated.
