Tasting Notes

A family domaine that has been run by third-generation winemaker Aurore Dezat since 2011. She farms 9 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the commune of Sury-en-Vaux on limestone, pebble and flint soils. Their Sancerre is well-balanced and fruity, with a sweet citrus acidity.

    Our newest producer from Sancerre, Aurore Dezat took over the family vineyards and makes one of the most mineral-driven and aromatically perfumed of all our Sauvignon Blancs from the region. Her vines are on the classic calcareous clay soil with caillottes gravel. Focused and pure with flavors of grapefruit peel, chalky mineral and white flowers. Tremendous!

    This is a very light and refreshing style of Sancerre from Aurore Dezat, made from 25-30 year old vines grown in terre blanche soil. The terroir imparts a classic limestone minerality, vibrant acidity and very noticeable green apple note that for me, sets this Sancerre apart from the crowd. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a crisp, light style of Sancerre with subtle complexity and finesse.
