Domaine Patrice Moreux Sancerre 2019

Domaine Patrice Moreux Sancerre has a brilliant, clear yellow colour with green highlights. The grapefruit and lemon citrus-y nose leaves a chalky impression. The mouth is all about finesse. Tasty grapefruit, freshly squeezed lemon and gooseberry fruit flavours with a good dose of flinty minerals. Fruity and dry, a Sancerre that will suit most palates.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. The fruit comes from 30-years-old vines in the terroirs of Chavignol and Crézancy, which have a limestone clay soil composition. The blend of these two terroirs help to give this Sancerre its marvellous balance. Limited intervention viticultural practice. Use of organic fertilizers only when necessary.
After a careful selection, the fruit goes through gentle pneumatic pressing for 2.5 hours. Spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts from the grapes for 8 weeks in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation proceeds for about 80% of the cuvee as the Sancerre ages on lees in concrete tanks over 5 months. The wine is racked off its lees and fined with bentonite clay. A light filtration is done 28 days after fining, since the lunar cycle guides the vinification process.
Ageing potential: 5–8 years
We love ourselves a good Sauvignon Blanc but adore unusual whites made with indigenous grapes too! Check out Baia’s Wine Krakhuna White 2020.


Although young, this open wine is bright with zingy acidity and perfumed green fruits. Freshly squeezed lemon gives a burst of crispness at the end. Drink now.
