Francois Le Saint | Sancerre ‘Calcaire’
For the Lord or Lady of the house
Sancerre has a pedigree – known as being one of, if not THE, best Sauvignon Blanc on the planet. We believe the true title is up for debate, but alas, this wine is undeniable good! This particular Sancerre, is grown in Calcaire, or chalky soils, where the water retention is higher, and the fruit becomes more plush, soft, and rich, versus some of the more austere and acidic styles. There is a beautiful ripeness to this wine - a slight D’Anjou pear and tree-ripened, late harvest citrus flavor with fresh wet stone.
