Sancerre La Chatellenie 2017 3 x Magnums

Sancerre
  • 3 x Magnums

Sauvignon Blanc thrives in the flint rich soils of Sancerre, giving it its distinctive gun-flint flavours. Aged on its fine lees preserving all its freshness and depth.

Vineyards

La Chatellenie is a single vineyard of 22 hectares with ancient soils from the Cretaceous period. This flint rich siliceous clay emparts the subtle hint of gun-flint. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted to each terroir.

Vintage

Rainfall was low in 2017 so yields were low but fruit is full of flavour.

Winemaking

Following on from cold static settling, the fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.
