With ideal weather conditions toward the end of the growing season the 2016 vintage has produced flavorful and fruit driven wines, especially for the Sauvignon Blanc plantings in Sancerre. This years vintage of Domaine La Clef du Recit is juicy and refreshing with an almost passion fruit like tropical note on the nose along with lime zest and ruby red grapefruit flesh. The fruit meets an intense limestone mineral component and the palate has mouthwatering, lip smacking acidity. Perfect for lovers of a zesty Sancerre, but would also satisfy those who gravitate toward Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs.
