Pale gold in colour with a subtle nose of tropical fruit and refined oak. The palate is well balanced with ripe fruit and fresh well balanced acidity. The finish is long and concentrated with hints of apples and a touch of creaminess.
Pale lemon in colour with a youthful rim, fresh, crisp apple and a touch of citrus on the nose. On the palate, it has attractive weight, with a good balance of ripe, yellow plums and greengage fruit character and fresh lemon-lime acidity. Fresh and zippy on the finish.
Pale but bright, this wine has intense fruity aromas with hints of apricots and peaches, that continue through to the juicy fruity palate. The delicious fresh finish is long and scented, with stone fruit and citrus complexity.
A delicate, pale lemon colour with light floral aromas of jasmine, pear and lightly toasted bread. The palate is juicy with pure, citrus fruit character and a long, fine-textured finish.
Pale yellow in colour with a touch of complexity on the nose brought about by ageing on the lees. The palate is well balanced with surprisingly good weight and concentration followed by a clean, crisp finish.
A Brilliant colour with a pale yellow tint and green hues; fresh nose of white flowers and fruits; freshness in the mouth.
A beautiful wine with a light golden pale robe and greenish highlights, with muscat-like aromas and notes of liquorice. It has excellent roundness to it, and is ready to drink now!
Awarded 92 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2016 edition review of Sancerre 2015 (see blue link below).
In the village of Crézancy, seven kilometres west of Sancerre, the Sautereau family has been producing wine for nine generations. The winery is now being run by David Sautereau, who is producing modern, attractive wines that offer excellent value for money.
The Domaine's 15 hectares of vineyard are situated mainly in Crézancy, with a tiny proportion located in Bué and the village of Sancerre itself. The range of soils in this area (mainly chalk, with clay, flint and pebbles depending on which parcel of vines) allows David a good spread of different blending components for the wine, giving more complex and varied flavours.
The pressed grapes were fermented at between 20-21ºC followed by three months on lees. The wine remained in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for six months before bottling. The fairly cool fermentation ensured a particularly pure, fruity style while three months on the lees provided extra complexity and richness.
A clear pale lemon colour. Floral aromas develop into fresh grass. On the palate, refreshing acidity is balanced with fruit flavours of green apple and white grapefruit.
Citrus aromas from a fresh young wine with light green fruits and a clean, zesty crispness.
A light, crisp blend from Alain Gayrel made with fresh, vibrant grape varieties. This is an excellent aperitif wine, that will also match gracefully light dishes such as chicken salads. Excellent value for money, and a wine that very much over-delivers on its name (Pinard is the French name for 'plonk'!).
Punchy, fresh gooseberry aromas with a lingering, clean citrus fruit finish.
Bright golden in the glass with a nose showing lemons and butterscotch. Satisfying heft on the palate with barely perceptible oak notes and soft balancing acidity.
This classic Pinot Blanc really encapsulates the Trimbach style: fermented completely dry, with a firm structure, lovely lemony fruit with lots of breadth, a minerally backbone and a truly elegant poise and balance.
