Domaine Regis Jouan - Sancerre - Sauvignon Blanc - 2018 - 1500 ml
Sauvignon Blanc in its quintessential form comes from Sancerre. 300 miles inland from the Atlantic, Sancerre enjoys a continental climate, and the chalky limestone and flint hills provide the nutrients that make this wine so special the world's model for crisp, focused, sauvignon blanc. Sophisticated and stylish, the Jouan has all of the classic lemon, citrus, and star-fruit notes we expect and love as well as a heavenly hint of flowers. And with a racy, white grapefruit palate, and tart, dry lemon on the finish, it's some of the best white wine matches for food, too.
The estate Regis Jouan, located in Sury En Vaux, one of 13 municipalities covering the appellation Sancerre, is close to the left bank of the Loire, a rich terroir with such a unique character that is found during the tasting of his wines. The vines, 25 years old on average and facing South-West, enjoy a clay and limestone soil dating back to the era of the Upper Jurassic.
Such exposure and planting allow to reveal the mysteries of Sancerre Jouan: a very distinct fruity aroma and a powerful structure at the same time.
