`Antique´ cuvées

Antique Sancerre White

‘Antique’ cuvées

'L'Antique' was created 30 years ago, and is one of my very first Sancerre cuvées. The grapes come mainly from the best Silex hillsides in the village of Saint-Satur. For this cuvée, I wanted to follow my grandfather's footsteps by making an unclarified, slightly filtered wine, allowing the elegance of the terroir to shine through to the full.

This wine is available in France from 31,80 € at your preferred wine shop, or at our online shop Aux Trésors de Bacchus

Grape-variety

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Age of the vines

~35 years old

Soil

90% Flint of St-Satur, 10% Terres Blanches of Thauvenay

Vinification

The grapes are from a careful selection of Sauvignon Blanc old vines grown in St-Satur. All of my parcels are treated to the utmost core and attention prior to harvesting so as to ensure optimum aromatic maturity. The juices are pressed slowly and gently at the domaine and therefore naturally concentrated in aromas. Vinification ends with cold stabulation for 8 days and fermentation at controlled temperatures of l6-18°C.

Yellow with silver tinges.

Nose:

The already expressive nose offers Sansho pepper, blackberry bud, white peach, exotic fruits and citrus fruits such as pomelos.

A rich and powerful wine with an elegant freshness. A delicate touch of bitterness lingers on the long and incredibly well balanced finish.

8 - 10 °C.

Goats cheeses, a white bean bruschetta, mushrooms and grilled white fish.

Lovely purity here, with flint, golden berries, white asparagus and wet stones on the nose. This is quite bright and tangy, with tempting minerals and guava on the palate. Limey and textured. Delicious now.

Aromas of lemon zest, green apple, fennel and fresh basil. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity and a juicy, fresh finish. Some tension and texture. Drink now.
