"The wine's name means Sancerre from the old days, or made in a traditional way. Certainly if that way was to make a superb rich wine with great fruit, then this succeeds. It comes from flint soil and that's discernible in the steely edge that gives a contrast to the ripe fruit. Drink this still-young wine, with its wood-aging flavors from 2019." (WE)

Winery Notes:
This wine is full of aromas such as lime, verbena but also delicate mineral nuan- ces (flint). In mouth, fresh touch of grapefruits, almonds, hawthorn and light touch of coconuts. Its minerality gives it a great lengh. Concentrated, full and fine, equally excellent when young or up to 6 -8 years ageing
