Francois Le Saint Sancerre Calcaire 2015 Product #32987 (In Stock)
Francois Le Saint Sancerre Calcaire 2015 Francois Le Saint Sancerre Calcaire 2015

From one of the oldest continuously operating estates in Sancerre, this is organically grown Sauvignon Blanc from soils laced with limestone and seashells - "Calcaire." It's 100% free run juice with just a bit of lees aging for richness, and it pumps out classic Sancerre aromas and flavors of white grapefruit and Granny Smith apple with just a hint of herb.  Rounder and fleshier than some Sancerres, it has the generosity to savor solo but no lack of food-friendly energy on the crisp, lightly herbal and mineral, finish.

Dom Pierre Prieur & Fils Sancerre 2017 Product #33264 (In Stock)

Hold onto your hats - this could blow you away! It's classic Sancerre Sauvignon, with generous aromas and flavors of white peach, white grapefruit, passion fruit, flint, and a touch of herb.  Supple and very pure on the palate, it finishes with refreshing cut and minerality and lovely purity to go with the rich texture.  A great food Sancerre that's polished enough to just sip, too.  Best vintage we've tried yet from this superb value brand.

Cherrier Sancerre Les Chailloux Vieilles Vignes 2017 Product #33389 (In Stock)
Cherrier Sancerre Les Chailloux Vieilles Vignes 2017 Cherrier Sancerre Les Chailloux Vieilles Vignes 2017

Zowie, this is absolutely delicious and compelling in 2017.  Clear and generous aromas of white grapefruit, stone fruit and flint carry through the the palate where the wine starts zippy, turns round, and then finishes with excellent cut and acidity.  Plenty of flint, kiwi, pear and peach flavors from start to finish in this clean, well delineated, traditionally-styled Sancerre. This is outstanding value for the quality.

Dom du Nozay Sancerre 2016 Product #33408 (In Stock)
Dom du Nozay Sancerre 2016 Dom du Nozay Sancerre 2016

Neal Rosenthal is pretty picky - so much so that it's taking him 30 years to add a second Sancerre estate to his book.  Dom du Nozay was worth the wait!  Perched in the extreme northern end of the appellation, Nozay is run by Cyril de Benoist.  He's the nephew of the legendary Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee Conti, and some of that talent and dedication has clearly rubbed off.

This is the real deal in Sancerre, a wine of purity and clarity that's more about "Sancerre" than "Sauvignon Blanc."  Green melon, white citrus and a kiss of slate show on the nose and palate with a deep minerality from front to back.  It's very long on the palate and even longer on the finish where a touch of lime joins the party.  Utterly delicious and compelling.

Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre Les Grandes Marnes 2014 Product #31962 (In Stock)
Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre Les Grandes Marnes 2014 Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre Les Grandes Marnes 2014

Old vines (30-60 years) and a mix of Kimmeridgian marl and Silex flint give this fantastic intensity.  The incredibly sophisticated use of large (about 3x the size of a Burgundy barrel) new French oak (60%) transforms that intensity into pure luxurious delight.

It's explosively aromatic, with scents of sliced pineapple, grapefruit flesh and peel, smoky gunflint, and fresh cut grass just jumping out of the glass.  In the mouth it starts like biting into a fresh, perfectly ripe, kumquat - a pop of citrus oil, followed by fleshy orange-tinged citrus fruit and juice and a just-right bite of bitter pith.  A dusting of black pepper and creamy touch of Meyer lemon confit adds complexity as do subtle notes of fresh tarragon and chive.  You don't really experience the oak as "oak" - instead it just rounds the texture and intensifies the Silex gunflint minerality.  Take a sip and wait 90-120 seconds - you'll still be tasting and savoring this beauty.  A remarkable, delicious, supremely sophisticated wine to enjoy tonight and over the next 5 years.

Lucien Crochet Sancerre 2016 Product #33331 (In Stock)

Put together one of Sancerre's finest traditional houses with the concentrated, powerful, 2016 vintage and you get something pretty fun!  This is pure, unoaked, unmanipulated Sauvignon Blanc informed by Sancerre's flinty limestone soils and 2015's bold stone, citrus and almost tropical fruit.  Big flavors and aromas are balanced by fine clarity and purity and a zingy, fresh, acid and mineral finish.

Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Cote De Marloup 2014 Product #33248 (In Stock)
Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Cote De Marloup 2014 Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Cote De Marloup 2014

We love the wines from Fleuriet's second winery, Renaissance, but the wines they make at their home estate, Dom Benoit et Mathieu Fleuriet, are certainly breathtaking as well. In this wine from silex, Kimmeridgian limestone, and white chalk soils, Bernard takes a different approach.  No oak here, but an amazing complexity and texture from fermentation and aging in concrete egg.

You'll spend a lot of time just sniffing here, enjoying the kaleidoscope of lemon pith, mango, green pineapple, passion fruit and bold white truffle aromas.  Every dip into the glass delivers something new, as does every sip.  Vivid and complex on the palate, the flavors of white citrus, lemon/lime pith, delicate truffle, slate and smoky "gun flint" ride a texture at once round and brilliantly precise.  And the finish is simply huge, and long, and captivating.  Sancerre for rich cheeses, lobster, buttered mushrooms and more.

Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Rouge Anthocyanes 2015 Product #33249 (In Stock)
Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Rouge Anthocyanes 2015 Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Rouge Anthocyanes 2015

Forget light, quaffable, simply fruity Sancerre Rouge. This is majestic, old-vine, Pinot Noir that reminds you that Sancerre was almost entirely planted to red grapes until phylloxera wiped them out and vineyards were planted to easier-to-grow Sauvignon Blanc.  As importer Olivier Daubresse says, Bernard Fleuriet reminds us of Burgundy's Jean-Michel Guillon in work ethic, commitment to excellence, and passion for impeccable winemaking.  Here beautifully ripe and concentrated Pinot Noir spends a full 25 days in vat (vs 5-8 days for most Sancerre Rouge) before aging 14 months in highest quality, 50% new, French oak (from a cooper favored by Guillon).  Serious and seriously delicious.

"Old-vine Pinot Noir has produced a rich structured wood-aged wine. With its opulent texture and ripe full-bodied cherries and red plums, the wine is poised and generous. Drink this impressive wine from 2018."Wine Enthusiast 94 points

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Etienne Henri 2013 Product #32429 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Etienne Henri 2013 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Etienne Henri 2013

A luxury, amazingly cellar-worthy, Sancerre fermented and aged in barrel.  Savory and complex now, this turns Burgundian with age - up to 10 years!

"Features an alluring whiff of warm shortbread, along with a hint of macadamia nut. Stays racy and fresh overall, with the lemon zest, white peach and gooseberry core driving through the finish. This will win fans for sure." Wine Spectator 90 points
