Complex mineral & herbaceous character with long flinty finish. Bone dry.
Tasting Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc grape excels in this rich, limestone soil, giving a crisp edge to the wine`s natural richness. This single vineyard Sancerre has the added complexity of mineral and herbaceous flavours on the palate. Well balanced and round in the mouth, the immense long notes of gooseberries and citrus combine with the crisp flinty notes which linger on the finish.
