Domaine Bonnard Sancerre 2015 (1x 75cl)

It's on our Christmas List because... Bonnard is/are our go-to producer for excellent Pouilly-Fume and Sancerre (Pascal Jolivet is the other, but these wines are less certain of supply). This is an excellent Sancerre from the equally excellent 2015 harvest. 

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.

Domaine Des Ballandors Quincy 2016 (1x75cl)

Quincy was the first French white wine appellation to be given AOC status in 1936. Latterly, however, it is nearby Sancerre that has grabbed the limelight. Jean Tatin, described by Decanter in 2009 as a 'pioneer' of the region, has helped put Quincy back on the map with his crystalline and classic Sauvignon Blanc. Jean and his wife Chantal have 20 hectares in Quincy, planted mainly on the freshwater Kimmeridgian limestone that gives the pure, mineral character to the Ballandors Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes for Quincy are grown in four parcels of vines situated in the heart of the Quincy Appellation, on the left bank of the river Cher. 30% of the wine is from old vines and 60% from 20 year old vines and the remaining 10% from younger vines. Each of the parcels has a slightly different soil: 'Chaumoux' is sand over a chalky, flint and limestone base to give the characteristic minerality of this region, whereas 'Les Victoires', 'Le Pressoir' and 'Les Ballandors' are a mix of sand and clay.

Each plot is kept separate to identify the wines by their terroir. The grapes underwent low pressure pneumatic pressing and temperature controlled fermentation. The wine was aged on fine lees with bâtonnage.

Bright pale yellow in colour with lively citrus and herbs on the nose and a touch of exotic stone fruit. The palate is refreshing, with fine acidity supporting excellent lemon intensity. The finish is long and lingering with gentle mineral notes alongside the round fruit flavours.

£14.20

Domaine Des Brosses Sancerre 2016 (1x75cl)

The 2015 vintage (no longer available) was awarded 90 points and Highly Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their September 2016 edition review of Sancerre 2015 (see blue link below). 

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 Corbillieres Sauvignon De Touraine 2016 (1x75cl)

Light, lemon-yellow with a fresh, lively perfume of citrus and green apple with hints of sherbet on the nose.  On the palate it has great balance with plenty of fresh fruit providing good weight and a zesty acidity giving it a lift.  A lively, mineral note gives the finish complexity.
