Description

Domaine La Perrière Sancerre 2020

Domaine la Perrière Sancerre has a bright appearance with green highlights. It is well-balanced and fruity on the nose with aromas of white flowers, vineyard peach and acacia. On the palate, this wine is supple and well-structured and develops mineral and white fruit notes. The finish is fresh and pleasant, on orange zests.

The 43 hectares of La Perrière are heavily dominated by Sauvignon Blanc, planted over roughly 38 hectares, compared to only 5 hectares of Pinot Noir. Sauvignon Blanc is only permitted for the production of Sancerre Blanc wines. This beautiful blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Direct pneumatic pressing. Cold settling for 48 hours. Low temperature fermentation. Aging on fine lees for 3-4 months before bottling.

Great care and attention are taken at harvest time with 50% of the Sauvignons Blancs being picked by hand. This first sorting carried out in the vineyard ensures that the less healthy grapes are rejected and that only the grapes that have reached the desired maturity level are retained. The Sauvignons are then taken to the cellars to undergo a short, cold, pre-fermentation maceration before being pressed (direct pneumatic pressing) and fermented. The aging on fine lees lasts for only 3-4 months before the wines are bottled in early spring.

Sancerre is one of the most classic expressions of Sauvignon Blanc, and amongst my wine pals, this appellation always stays in front of our mind. The 2019 Domaine de la Perrière provides an excellent example of why we are such fans. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits beautiful and well-defined aromas and flavors of dried herbs, earth, and citrus. Pair it with a dozen raw oysters sprinkled with crushed black peppercorns.

With a youthful character, this wine is full of zesty citrus and ripe white fruits. The texture has an edgy, zippy feel that needs to soften. Drink from 2021.
