“Brilliantly crafted Sancerre from an exciting, yet very small domaine, in the village of Thauvenay. This delightful, fragrant wine, has a vibrancy and a delicacy all of its own. Delicious.
Prise for the 2015 vintage:
Highly Recommended: Decanter Sancerre Tasting 2015
"Light citric notes and a smoky, bright nose with a reserved mineral vein. This has a lean and grippy style. The palate is pure and nicely polished, showing white stone fruit and white peach freshness, with an energetic balance of fruit and acidity. Deliciously fine example. Drink 2017-2024. 94 points." (2015 vintage)
Silver Medal: ELLE à table 2016
"Beautiful pale yellow colour with green hues. Fresh nose, bursting with citrus, lime and green apple. Frank and chiselled mouth with a great aromatic purity. Nice personality with mineral saline nuances. Long finish that ends with a hint of grapefruit." (2015 vintage)”
