Domaine Naudet Sancerre 2016
is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region: Loire Valley
Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
Estate: Following the extension of the Domaine by Monsieur Jean NAUDET in 1985 the Société Civile d'Exploitation Viticole came into being with his son Michel as its head.
The property is situated in Sury-en-Vaux, a viticultural commune six kilometres from Sancerre. Today the Domaine makes wines from Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
The highest hills of the area are made of the white soils – limestone clay that produces racy and well-structured wines, and they are chiefly based in the commune of Sury-en-Vaux.
The communes of Verdigny and Bué have have very stony slopes made up of small pebbles, high in limestone and giving fine wines, light and fruity. The commune of Saint-Satur has soils rich in flint producing meaty wines, well held together, with a characteristic bouquet.
Tasting Notes: A pale yellow with green highlights. On the nose, a very expressive nose with fruity notes. There are floral and mineral nuances underscored by fine freshness. In the mouth, the wine is generous with flavours of white-fleshed fruits. A supple and round attack leads to a meaty finish with balanced vivacity. This wine goes perfectly with fish and seafood. In Sancerre it goes equally well with Crottin de Chavignol cheese.
