Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc
Localization: Sancerre, Loire Valley, France
Tasting Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc grape excels in this rich, limestone soil, giving a crisp edge to the wine`s natural richness. This single vineyard Sancerre has the added complexity of mineral and herbaceous flavours on the palate. Well balanced and round in the mouth, the immense long notes of gooseberries and citrus combine with the crisp flinty notes which linger on the finish.
Food pairing: Perfect as an apertif on a summers evening, otherwise will pair excellently with seafood, river fish and goats cheese salads.
The Domain: The Neveu family, viticulturist father and son, have been based in the heart of the Chavignol vineyards for generations, and today carry on the tradition of the great Sancerrois vignerons.
Valérie (André Neveu’s daughter), and her husband Thomas, now run the Domaine that extends to about 13 hectares of vines of AOC Sancerre red, white and rosé.
They harvest, vinify and sell everything themselves.
