Winemaker Notes

This wine is bright in the glass. It is a fine, balanced, fruity wine, with aromas of white flowers and acacia. In the mouth it is fruity, with soft mineral notes and white fruits.

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.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture that is virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes are grown just about everywhere throughout the country—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas. The defining geographical feature of the country is the Apennine Mountain range, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south. The island of Sicily nearly grazes the toe of Italy’s boot, while Sardinia lies to the country’s west. Climate varies significantly throughout the country, with temperature being somewhat more dependent on elevation than latitude, though it is safe to generalize that the south is warmer. Much of the highest quality viticulture takes place on gently rolling, picturesque hillsides.

Italy boasts more indigenous varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but their use is declining in popularity, especially as younger growers begun to take interest in rediscovering forgotten local specialties. Sangiovese is the most widely planted variety in the country, reaching its greatest potential in parts of Tuscany. Nebbiolo is the prized grape of Piedmont in the northwest, producing singular and age-worthy wines at its best. Other important varieties include Montepulciano, Trebbiano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola, and of course, Pinot Grigio.
