Description

Domaine Chotard Sancerre Tradition Blanc 2020

Domaine Chotard Sancerre Tradition Blanc is a crisp and dry white.
Pale yellow colour. The nose is fresh and grassy with subtle grapefruit citrus and white blossom nuances. The full-bodied and dry palate has a crisp acidity and good length. Refreshing lemon citrus, grapefruit zest and green apple flavours that close in a long saline finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Domaine Chotard's estate is at the end of Reigny village, in Crézancy-en-Sancerre, with a cirque of surrounding hills of clay-limestone Kimmeridgian marls. The plots on these slopes are sunny all day long and the vines sink their roots into springs that run in the basement. The fruit for this wine comes from three parcels of vines grown on limestone, pebbly griottes and marl.
Harvest by hand and by machine. After manual sorting of the grapes, the harvest goes through pressing and cold stabilisation for 3–4 days before light settling and fermentation. Ageing in vats and in barrels for 6–10 months.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES



 An elegant blend from three parcels of vines grown on limestone, pebbly griottes and marl; a small amount is matured in acacia barrels and oak foudres. A lightness of touch is evident in the delicate citrus and mineral profile, balanced by a rich silkiness to the texture, with subtle stone fruit hints. Fresh, with great persistence. Drinking Window: 2020–2024.
