This wine is bright with a nose that boasts aromas of candied citrus, white stone fruit, mango and pineapple. The palate is defined by the optimal balance between the freshness of the fruit and the richness of the lees. The finish is very dynamic with a pleasant touch of salinity adding complexity to this wine.
Domaine Sautereau owns a quarter of the 5.5 hectares of the lieu-dit 'Le Vignoble des Sarrottes' in Crézancy. The fruit is sourced from 13 to 50 year old vines grown on “terres blanches” (white soils). This type of soil is composed of limestone and clay and is rich in marine fossils that give this single vineyard Sancerre powerful aromas, beautiful minerality and a saline character.
In the village of Crézancy, seven kilometres west of Sancerre, the Sautereau family has been producing wine for nine generations. The winery is now being run by David Sautereau, who is producing modern, attractive wines that offer excellent value for money.
