Description

For the 2019 the wine was fermented in 80% large oak cask and 20% stainless steel, as the brothers have progressively increased the use of large oak over the last several years. The result is a wine that is still crisp and racy in the classic Sancerre style, but also with more texture, depth and complexity than it had 10 years ago. ‘One of the Pinard family’s more widely available cuvées, this opens with a delightfully smoky, bright and fresh nose. A very polished start to the palate, with no oak character showing here, instead a seamless subs ance, underpinned by delicious acidity, bitter and charged, which cuts through the elegantly formed fruit of the palate very well. A very fine substance, culminating in a long and slightly gripped character in the finish.’ (92-94) points, Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor, February 2020.
