Domaine Bonnard Sancerre 2016 (1x75cl)

Domaine Bonnard is a family vineyard of 12 hectares located in the heart of Sancerre. The estate has been producing wine for over half a century and offers both Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. The founders of the estate, Bernard and Pierrette Bonnard, still work on the estate with their two daughters, Martine who takes responsibility for viticulture and Claire who is their winemaker.

Domaine Bonnard’s wines are lively and long on the finish. Their  aromas are reminiscent of a forest or woodland with citrus notes on the palate that give the wine an overall harmony. The wine is pale gold in colour. To serve these wines at their best, over chilling them should be avoided. This wine is in the style of a classic Sancerre with enticing grassy notes, zesty citrus fruit and lively acidity.

Domaine Bonnard Sancerre is the perfect match for fish, seafood, white meats and cheeses, even strong ones.

Brosses Sancerre 2015 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

Domaine des Brosses was established in 1875 and lies 10 kilometres south of the town of Sancerre. The Girard family modernised the winery and vineyards when they bought the estate in 1973. Nicolas Girard has now taken over his father's 11 hectare estate and together with his brother Anthony, is making wines that are fresh, modern and aromatic. Both the brothers have travelled extensively throughout the wine world and have used the knowledge and experience acquired to underpin the style of their classic Sancerre.

The Girard family have six different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre.

Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to avoid oxidation. No oak was used, but the wine remained on its fine lees for several months to add weight to the palate and round the finish.

Bright and pale golden. A fresh, citrus palate with herbaceous notes of hay and nettle. Richly textured but with crisp acidity and textbook minerality. The finish is elegant with the typical purity and refreshment of excellent Sancerre.

£17.15

Domaine Des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre 2016 (1x 75cl)

A concentrated wine with a big personality. The nose is clean and fresh with enticing lemon and leafy green aromas. The palate is full of citrus and mineral fruits leading into the dry, crisp, lengthy finish.
£15.46

Domaine Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Blanc Le M.D. 2013 (1x 75cl)

An acclaimed producer whose exhibit the complexity of the terroir of Chavignol, being chalky with a touch of gunflint then opening on the palate with a broad array of flavours and wonderful length. The grapes for this wine are harvested from the Monts Damnes, slopes so steep that they are called cursed. A graceful and flavourful wine that will age and age. It has classic Loire characteristics of blackcurrant leaf, yellow plum and lemon with mineral and floral notes on the palate.

£20.46

Domaine Nicolas Girard Sancerre 2016 (1 x 75cl)

Awarded 91 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2016 edition review of Sancerre 2015 (see blue link below). 

Nicolas Girard 2015 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

Nicolas' small vineyard is situated on the slopes of Veaugues, in the Sancerre appellation. Here, the vines benefit from better drainage as well as greater exposure to the sun, which is important at such a northerly latitude. The vines are 5-25 years old. Soils are typically clay and chalk, giving the structured, firm mineral style expected of Sancerre. 

Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, without the use of oak. Nicolas sealed his wine with screwcap to maximise freshness and preserve the wine's perfumes. 

Pale lemon in colour with subtle green tints. On the nose, it is fresh and aromatic. On the palate, the wine has an attractive mineral quality, with a full body and refreshing acidity. The wine has the classic purity of citrus fruit, hay and nettles that is found in top quality Sancerre.

£17.35

Domaine Sautereau Sancerre 2016 (1x75cl)

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.

£17.35

Domaines De Ladoucette Pouilly Fume 2013 (1x 75cl)

Benchmark Pouilly- Fumé from the historic Ladoucette family who have been producing wine in the region since the eighteenth century. The nose is a veritable explosion of fruit, floral, herbaceous and gunflint notes. On the palate they are joined by crunchy green apple, pear and more citrus fruit. Searing acidity keeps makes it last and last on the finish.
£23.04

Jean Marechal Sancerre 2014 (1x 75cl)

From vineyards on the prime site of the hill opposite the village of Chavignol, vinified under the watchful eye of Arnaud Bourgeois, this is quintessential Sancerre. Superb.

£18.50

Le Petit Broux, Les Celliers de Cérès Sancerre 2016 (1x75cl)

Overt gooseberry style Sauvignon flavour mingled with some exotic scents. Immediately appealing, crisp and clean with a good concentration of fruit. Although immediately drinkable the it usually needs about six months in the bottle to lose its initial greenness.

£16.85

Millet Sancerre 2016 (1x 75cl)

The wine has an intensely aromatic nose of leaves, herbs and minerals. It has fresh acidity and is dry and fruity with a flinty quality.
£16.37
