Sancerre by Domaine de la Villaudiere 2015

Sancerre

by Domaine de la Villaudiere 2015

Producer : Domaine de la Villaudière

Region : France (France), Loire (France)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750 ml

Tasting Notes

Sancerre, in the upper Loire Valley, is the benchmark for Sauvignon Blanc in Europe — crisp and fruity, with racy acidity. The soil is composed of limestone and fossilized seashells, which gives the wine an unmistakable minerality. This wine displays a limpid, pale yellow hue with golden highlights. Expressive on the nose, combining floral fragrances with aromas of white peach and exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit). Well-balanced and honest on entry, the wine is underpinned by freshness and powerful, long-lasting acidity on the finish, revealing a lovely minerality.

The Producer

Domaine de la Villaudière

Situated in the northern part of the Sancerre region, Domaine de la Villaudiere is run by Jean Marie Reverdy and his wife Catherine Ferry, who are proud of their Sancerrois roots. The estate lies on the westernmost slope of the valley and has a wonderful view of the hill-top town of Sancerre. The total area under vine is about 15 hectares at 200 metres elevation.

The vineyards are spread throughout a number of villages in the region to minimize the risk that frost or hail might decimate the entire crop. All of them, however, generally have south, southeast or eastern exposure and vines, trained using single Guyot method at 6,000 plants per hectare, average about 20 years of age. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil, topped with gravel and flinty pebbles, which give Jean-Marie’s wines a distinctive elegance.

Spread over 28 plots, the vineyards are over thirty years old on average. The vineyards mainly enjoy a south-southeast exposure where maturation is gradual and even. The winery has practised sustainable viticulture for over twenty years, and each year they strive to adapt growing techniques.
