Mix & Match with Blanc Fumé, Pur Sang, Silex
This Sancerre comes from a small south-facing plot of extremely low-yielding, deep-rooted old vines in the steep “Monts Damnés” grand cru section of Sancerre’s famed Chavignol hillside. “Monts Damnes” may be Sancerre’s most renowned vineyard site and this wine translates its sought-after chalky limestone “terres blanches” soil with extraordinary concentration, drive, and depth. With an hour or more to air, and never too cold, this vivid and mineral Sancerre is wonderful to drink today. As it ages, this multi-dimensional Sancerre will reveal additional mineral and spice nuance as it slowly evolves over a decade and beyond. Sancerre lovers seeking something rare and special should experience what happens when fruit from one of Sancerre’s greatest vineyards meets one of the Loire’s, and the world’s legendary producers!
