The wines from each different soil type are fermented separately so to allow the terroir to fully express their differences and similarities. TASTINGS A wine of style marked by richness, elegance and smoothness. This wine is powerful and presents a perfect balance. FOOD AND WINE MATCHING Fresh water fish dishes, shellfish and goats’ cheeses’ will prove to be a compelling match, demonstrating the full expression and minerality of this Sancerre.
