This wine is selected from a 8.65 acre parcel of 40 year old vines planted on south facing slopes at the top of the village of Bue-en-Sancerre in the area called "La Plante des Pres", one of the best "terroir" in Sancerre.
A dry wine with balance and elegance on the palate. There's fresh, clean floral aromas and snappy, lip quenching acidity on the palate. This is a quite pleasant wine to sip and it pairs very well with seafood, fresh-water fish, white meats and soft cheeses.
Pair with shellfish, oysters, fish, crab, Asian cuisine.
"This has the vintage’s rapier acidity, but it’s embedded in a
creamy, porcelainlike texture that carries verbena, lemon curd,
white peach and gooseberry notes through the long, stylish,
stone-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013."
