Domaine La Perrière Sancerre 2022
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.
