Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Country, Region: France, Loire Valley
Appellation: Sancerre

A new single vineyard cuvee since 2015. The lieu-dit of Le Château sits on a south-west facing slope above the winery and is planted to old vines (planted 1970/72) on Oxfordian terroir of caillottes over kimmerigian limestone which is very typical of the vineyards around Bué. The fruit is hand picked, hand-sorted and then whole-bunch pressed, followed by fermentation and ageing predominantly in 600 litre barrels, with a smaller proportion done in stainless steel tanks. The wine is aged on fine lees for 9 months before bottling. A stunning wine of notable intensity and complexity which benefits from decanting and the finest stemware. Served blind this will challenge and more than compete in a line-up of fine white Burgundies. A very substantial wine with great energy and structure to age effortlessly.

 

Vincent Pinard

'Vincent Pinard and his two sons share a winemaking heritage that can be traced back several centuries in and around Bué, and their family tree begins in the early years of the 17th century, long before the French Revolution rocked this nation, and well before the slopes around Sancerre were carpeted with Sauvignon Blanc.' thewinedoctor.com
