Hand selected from The Loire Valley
This wine is all about fragrant white flowers, white peach and lemon with that classic varietal undercurrent of tomato stalk (in a good way).
Initially, fresh squeezed lime greets your tongue with notes of peach, grapefruit, and lemon meringue coming in waves. Chalky minerality and zippy acidity round out this great and focused sipper.
|Pair With:||Crottin de Chavignol, a small wheel of cheese from goats that graze maybe a few miles from Sancerre, is as close to a perfect wine and cheese pairing as there is. Sancerre wines have great minerality from the fossilized sea creatures in their soil and therefore pair beautifully with foods from the sea.|

"From The Cliffs of Dover"
The Sancerre region is part of the Paris Basin, an ancient sea bed that stretches from southwest of Paris through Chablis and Champagne and into southern England. The cliffs of Dover are the same chalky limestone that gives such structure to these wines. Combined with flinty Silex and chalky Kimmeridgian soils, Sauvignon blanc from these three unique terroirs produces nervy, powerful white wines with chalky minerality and laser-like focus.
