Tasting Notes

Hints of banana first appear on the nose which then opens with intense aromas of citrus zest, peaches and exotic fruits. In the background, floral notes of broom, elder flower and lily appear. Firm attack on the palate, which then allows a good volume mid-palate (iodine sensation). Back on aromatic white flowers and tropical fruits. More tense finish.

Technical Notes

The beautiful Cherrier vineyards located in the heart of the Loire Valley, are rooted in limestone soils known locally as “caillotts.” This type of soil is essential for top rated Sancerre and gives a supple structure to the 25-year old vines. Fermented traditionally in cement and stainless steel tanks.
