This wine has a pale yellow colour with an expressive and elegant nose. Aromas of citrus and gooseberry are complemented by floral and limestone notes which follow through on to the rounded palate. Medium-bodied with a crisp, saline finish.
The Domaine’s 22 hectares of vineyard are situated mainly in Crézancy, with a tiny proportion located in Bué and the village of Sancerre itself. The range of soils in this area, many of which are predominantly calcerous, allows David a good spread of different blending components for the wine, giving more complex and varied flavours.
The pressed grapes were fermented in stainless-steel tanks at relatively cool temperatures of 16-19ºC in order to preserve the purity and aromatics of the fruit.
In the village of Crézancy, seven kilometres west of Sancerre, the Sautereau family has been producing wine for nine generations. The winery is now being run by David Sautereau, who is producing modern, attractive wines that offer excellent value for money.
