Sancerre Les Vignes du Rocher 2019
This expressive wine has a powerful nose of exotic passion fruit, with hints of gunflint. The palate is aromatic with a lovely refreshing length.
The vines are grown on flint based soils on slopes facing South/South East. The vines then enjoy optimal exposure to the sun. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.
The 2019 was overall a good vintage in Central Loire, despite the frost episodes in early spring. The summer was very hot, with the heat stress impacting the overall yields but the remaining fruit quality was outstanding, yielding balanced and harmonious wines.
The grapes are first sorted and de-stemmed, before the juice undergoes cold static settling. Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at low temperatures.
