Winemaker's Notes:

The Sancerre Blanc Domaine de la Perrière is a dry white wine with a pale bright straw color. The nose provides an excellent gooseberry bouquet. There are lots of flowery fruit flavors on the palate, a good acid balance and a pleasing after taste with good length on mineral notes.

About Domaine de la Perriere:

The ancestors of Pierre Archambault have lived in the Sancerre area since the 15th century. In the beginning, the huge rock cave dug into the hillside beneath their vineyards was a quarry. Then it was used to grow mushrooms, and after that as a storage area for a sparkling wine producer. Monsieur Archambault's grandfather was the first of his family to specialize exclusively in growing grapes and making wine in the caves of Domaine de la Perriére.
