HALF BOTTLES: SPARKLING AND WHITE

Sparkling & White - SANCERRE, Terre de Maimbray, Reverdy. Loire Valley

2017 SANCERRE, Terre de Maimbray, Reverdy. Loire Valley (Half Bottle)

Bin: 807
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Size of bottle: 37.5cl
Area: Sancerre remains the most famous appellation in France for Sauvignon Blanc, and holds both its reputation and sales despite the rise of New Zealand and many other cool climate new world offerings.
The key here is the chalky soil (similar to Chablis), the cool but sunny climate and a heritage of doing a great job for many decades. The only problem is that prices from many producers is now way over the top (over £30 is common).
Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc, hand harvested and fermented in steel, bottled in the spring after a few months on the lees in steel tanks.
Producer: The label may still say Pascal & Nicolas but the latter sadly died around 10 years ago. Pascal continues to run the 14 hectare domaine, along with his wife Nathalie and sister in law Sophie.
Old Bridge Rating: Textbook example - stoney, 'mineral' backbone alongside the classic elderflower aromatics.
