Product Description

This family estate in Sancerre has old vine Sauvignon Blanc planted on caillottes soils in the commune of Verdigny, and on Silex soils in the area of Saint Satur. The owners of the vineyard are not winemakers and so they sell the entire production each year to a negociaint-eleveur named Laurent Gerard. The roots of the vines draw from two particular terroirs to imbue the wine with its unique characteristics. "Les Caillottes," which is predominantly limestone, brings finess and fruit notes. "Silex" is deeper, with more flint and minerals that give the wine structure and excellent depth as a serious "vin de soif." Verdigny has recently become associated with distinctive, high quality wines that they are often referred to as "crus" even though Sancerre is not officially classified like parts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. These 45+ year old vines are some of the hidden treasures that offer us the unprecedented values such as "La Foret des Dames".
