Sancerre Blanc “Le Roc”
The wine is vinified in a 7hl (184 gallon) vertical ovoid tank, in demi-muids and in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. Maturation on fine lees for 12 months.
We exploit 2.01 hectares (fives acres) out of a magic vineyard that covers 9 hectares (22 acres) over the village of Saint-Satur. Flint terroir represents 15% of Sancerre appellation and Le Roc might be its ultimate reference. It is also the very last land acquisition of the domaine in 2011.
It is magic terroir confers a remarkable complexity and an unbelievable minerality to the wine. Let it breathe when opening.
