2018 Sancerre "Chene Marchand" Domaine Jean Marc & Mathieu Crochet

Vintage Description

Chene Marchand is a particularly prized plot on the slopes of Bué reputed for its marl and gravel terroir which allows the Sauvignon Blanc to express its full potential. Extended contact on the lees gives this wine added complexity, concentration and texture. Very limited quantity of this 2017.

Tasting Notes

"Complex, intense nose, not primary, more subtle spice and mandarin. The palate shows a creamy texture, layered and with some savoury notes. Very, very pure mid palate, notes of apricot and a hint of hazelnut. Very, Very long. Delicious".
