2009 Sancerre la Reine Blanche
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Single vineyard. Vinification: cold fermentation in stainless steel tank, no oak, no malolactic fermentation.
Sweet, fruity and clean. White flowers (acacia, jasmine) and citrus fruits aromas. Perfectly balanced.
A delicious wine, perfect with fish dishes, especially salmon, and a local goat cheese Crottin de Chavignol.
"The 2009 Sancerre La Reine Blanche is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the regions chalky soils. Gorgeous aromas of flowers, honeyed melons, orange rind, and white currants are beautifully intense, precise, and fresh. Vinified and aged in stainless steel, with no malolactic, it exhibits zesty acidity and medium to full body buttressing the intense flavors. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
