Domaine des Vieux Pruniers 2020 Sancerre, Loire Valley - Half Bottle
Winemaker Christian Thirot-Fournier's family has been growing vines and making wine for several generations in the Loire Valley. The winery and their (9) hectares of vineyards are located on chalk and clay soils near the village of Bue. This is where many of Sancerre's most famous vineyards are located. Grapes are entirely hand harvested and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve aromas and flavors.
A beauty of a Sancerre!. Clean, pure citrus (lemon), white peach and grassy aromas with a touch of bay leaf, thyme and smoke. Balanced, crisp and flavorful on the palate with chalky minerality. Pair with fish, shellfish, pork, Thai food.
