90 Cellars Plus 126 Sancerre
From the lofty Piton, or hilltop, of Sancerre, ancient soils of limestone and silex cascade toward the western bank of Loire River. This distinct soil, perched on a base of Kimmeridgian marl, is why Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre has found its way onto the world’s top restaurant wine lists. This is a wine with an aristocratic heritage and a welcoming character.
A delicate perfume of white flowers with hints of citrus and flint give way to a silken texture and grapefruit-laced finish. Balanced and crisp, this is a wine destined for the finest tables, but happiest among a humble goat cheese topped salad.
