Appellation: Sancerre (Loire region)

Aromatics: Vibrant iodine minerality, white flowers, citrus, fresh gooseberry and peach, as well as spicy notes.

 

Palate: Delicious savoury texture. This cuvee is fresh and vibrant showing beautiful tension and depth. Very authentic and real expression of Sancerre with a true sense of place.

 

About the wine: Cuvee ‘Le Tournebride’ is from 30-year-old massal vineyards, representative of the three main terroirs of Sancerre: the stony, rubble-like Kimmeridgian limestone (Caillottes) brings the aromatics on the noise, the clay-limestone or marl (Terres blanches) brings the structure in the mouth and the flint (Silex) brings the length. Aged in old barrel. No filtration.

 

When to drink: Drink now or in the next 5-6 years.

 

Service: 12 degrees C. Decant when young.

 

Food match: Fish in sauce, white meats and fresh goats cheese.
