Dom Pierre Prieur & Fils Sancerre 2016 Product #31899 (In Stock)

A great wine is even better in the zesty 2016 Loire Valley harvest. 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.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016 Product #31940 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre Rose 2016

Sancerre just might be the benchmark for rosé made from Pinot Noir, and this is certainly a benchmark Sancerre pink.  100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in Chavignol, it serves up fresh sweet cherry and ripe strawberry fruit enlivened by a twist of lemon peel and herb.  Finishing pretty and fresh and nicely dry, this will be delicious with smoked salmon bites, mild paté, and just lounging in the sun.

Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015 Product #31961 (In Stock)
Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015 Fleuriet Renaissance Sancerre La Magie Des Caillottes 2015

From vines up to 40 years-old growing on Sancerre’s famous Kimmeridgian soils, the chalky marls responsible for the best wines of Chablis and Champagne, too.  Fermented and aged 50% in tank and 50% in brand new French oak barrels, allowing the oak to round off Sauvignon’s sometimes harsh edges and time on the fine lees to add body and creamy richness.  The oak shows in the wine’s texture – round, smooth, voluptuous – but not so much in the aromas and flavors.  It’s bold and rich with very ripe peach, white citrus, and an exotic touch of tangerine.  There’s plenty of body in this warm vintage, but also a sizzlingly sharp finish where lemon citrus and mineral notes make your mouth water and keep the flavors fresh and long.  A fine wine to just drink for refreshment on a warm day and even better with cilantro-laced Vietnamese fish dishes.

Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014 Product #31967 (In Stock)
Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014 Henri Bourgeois Sancerre La Chapelle des Augustins 2014

Ripe, tart, lightly herbal, and pulsing with gunflint minerality, this stunner from old vines drinks well now and will be better from 2018.

"The combination of chalk and flint soils has produced a wine that is young and all about minerality at this stage. It has considerable potential with its hints of ripe fruits. For now, with texture dominant, it is still fresh, tangy and developing."Wine Enthusiast 92 points

"This ripples with gooseberry, thyme and chive notes, thanks to mouthwatering acidity that pulls everything through the finish with tightly coiled focus. Show subtle depth, echoing with a hint of bitter citrus."Wine Spectator 91 points

Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014 Product #31695 (In Stock)
Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014 Ch Fontaine-Audon Sancerre Blanc 2014

What Sancerre is all about, in this case from a prime vineyard on classic silex soils.  While there's nice fruit here, this is all about minerality. Bold aromas and flavors of lemon/lime pith, pulp, and peel with a hint of something herbal and loads of gunflint and mineral.  Finishes with fine energy and length, leaving fresh citrus fruit, pith, and flint flavors lingering on.  Mouthwatering and complex.

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.

Dom Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2015 Product #31013 (In Stock)
Dom Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2015 Dom Vacheron Sancerre Blanc 2015

Sancerre just doesn't get better than this beauty from biodynamic grapes grown in flint and chalk soils in the great 2015 vintage.  Big aromas of white citrus, white pepper, green herb and flint lead to a precise, finely detailed, palate of citrus, peach, Granny Smith apple and loads of flinty mineral.  Rich, but finishes crisp and clean with citrus fruit and stony minerality lingering.  An elegant, complex, Sancerre to pair with sophisticated salads or seafood or just sip with joy.

"Jean-Dominique Vacheron's white 2015 Sancerre shows a very clear and elegant white fruit aroma with elderflowers on the nose. Full-bodied, very elegant and fruit intense, but also with mineral and phenolic grip, it has a long and powerful finish. This is remarkably good, perfectly balanced Sancerre. The 2015 reflects the warm and sunny vintage as well as the elegant and complex Vacheron style. The aromatic aftertaste reveals a nice mango aroma, as well as cassis and refreshing mineral flavors."Wine Advocate 90 points
