Domaine Denizot - Sancerre (2020)
A dense, well-balanced profile with tense energy sprinkled with touches of juicy white fruit. Limestone minerality and delicate.
For 8 generations, this family estate has produced exceptional wines with Thibauld Denizot now at the helm. Organically farmed, his interventions are minimal allowing the natural flavours of the grapes to shine creating crisp, fresh wines with lovely mineral tension enhanced by the limestone soil (caillottes) specific to the region.
From a blend of terroirs in the villages of Amigny, Chavignol, Sancerre and Verdigny. With a long and gentle pneumatic pressing; fermentation in concrete and stainless steel tanks; and aging on fine lees, the Denizot is textbook Sancerre texture, elegance and precision.
