Winemaker Notes

 Bright green-gold color. A powerful nose with white fruit notes, white peach, and pear. Sweet and supple, the palate evolves towards more vivacity, carried by a nice minerality and fresh lemon aromas.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
The iconic slope of the Mont Damnés vineyard in Chavignol has produced a ripe while also textured wine. It is concentrated, with tense acidity behind the white fruits. The wine will be ready later this year.
JS 92
James Suckling
Discreet quince and gooseberry on top of the tangy, effusive stony minerality on the nose. Textured and taut on the palate, which is dry and broad and cut through with fresh acidity. Mineral and fruity at the same time. Vegan. Drink now.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Replete with shifting flavors, this shows progression along its substantial length, bright, grassy citrus notes mellowing out to a red-tinged apple finish, all flecked by minty pyrazines

Sancerre Wine

Loire, France

Marked by its charming hilltop village in the easternmost territory of the Loire, Sancerre is famous for its racy, vivacious, citrus-dominant Sauvignon blanc. Its enormous popularity in 1970s French bistros led to its success as the go-to restaurant white around the globe in the 1980s.

While the region claims a continental climate, noted for short, hot summers and long, cold winters, variations in topography—rolling hills and steep slopes from about 600 to 1,300 feet in elevation—with great soil variations, contribute the variations in character in Sancerre Sauvignon blancs.

In the western part of the appellation, clay and limestone soils with Kimmeridgean marne, especially in Chavignol, produce powerful wines. Moving closer to the actual town of Sancerre, soils are gravel and limestone, producing especially delicate wines. Flint (silex) soils close to the village produce particularly perfumed and age-worthy wines.

About ten percent of the wines claiming the Sancerre appellation name are fresh and light red wines made from Pinot noir and to a lesser extent, rosés. While not typically exported in large amounts, they are well-made and attract a loyal French following.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
