Sancerre Blanc "Jean Colin"

Sancerre Blanc

A bit of history :
A vintage from our Ancestor! The influence of the Loire, the intimate knowledge with ground of Loire valley, a strict selection of grapes and the meticulous work in the cellar symbolizing the depth and the intensity of Jean Colin’s quality.

Grape variety :
100% Sauvignon blanc

Terroir :
Soil with mainly limestone.

Vineyard work :
Reasoned culture, cover in grass, no grasskiller, disbudding, green harvest, work on the soils

Winemaking :
Immediately after having been harvested, grapes are slowly pressed to extract the best of the fruit. The juice then ferments 4 weeks under controlled tempraturesfrom 13 to 17 degrees, a process which ensures the conservation of all fruit aromas. It lies on its fine lees until February, where it develops its richness and its length. We then use successive tastings to determine the best moment to bottle our Sancerre.

Tasting :
The nose expresses white flesh fruits and has a good floral side. The mouth is chiselled with a wonderful homogeneity from the beginning to the end. The minerality make last the finals. This Sancerre "Jean Colin" delivers a superb richness and is surprisingly generous. A great Sancerre, typical and elegant !

Food and wine pairing :
The wine should be served between 8 to 12░C. Fish and crustaceans, scallop Carpaccio, goat’s cheese and especially Crottin de Chavignol, a PDO cheese from Sancerre.
