About the Wine: Here the pure expression of a single terroir: SILEX! A white Sancerre chiseled in stone which reveals all the purity and minerality of Sauvignon Blanc on one of its favorite terroirs. Flint soils give straight, fine wines with aromas so typical of flint mixed with white fruit and citrus. Despite its strength, it remains delicate with a nice zesty, appetizing and saline finish.
Winemaker's Tasting Notes: This single plot Sancerre unveils the purity and the minerality of sauvignon blanc rooted in the greatest and rarest terroir in Sancerre. This king of soils gives a wine with a great intensity and an excellent aging potential. It is racy and reveals notes of ripe grapefruit, zests, subtle notes of white fruits and hints of gunflint. The full-bodied palate offers straightness, a fine extract and a long lingering finish. A very discreet hint almost saline on the background. Truly outstanding!
Serving Suggestions: Food and wine pairing: this local Sancerre will pair well with noble crustaceans such as prawns, lobsters, lobsters, etc., foie gras, but it is also a sushi wine par excellence
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc.
