Cedrick Bardin Sancerre 2020
Cedrick Bardin Sancerre is a typical expression of Sauvignon Blanc from a flinty terroir. Pale yellow colour with green reflections. White flowers, lychee and passion fruit dominate the nose whilst a touch of lime and white pepper creates a beautiful freshness. A frank and chiseled attack on an elegant palate. Full and silky mouthfeel with a light fruit sweetness and fresh zingy acidity. Grapefruit, bitter orange and lime citrus flavours emerge with stoney minerality, a hint of white blossoms and a touch of exotic fruit. Dry and crisp with a lean finish.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from 25-years-old vines grown in the flinty soils. These vines grow in the eastern part of the Sancerre vineyards, in the communes of Saint Satur and Ménétréol sous Sancerre.
Cold settling of the must on lees for 4–5 days before fermentation. Fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for 10–15 days at a temperature of 15°C. Battonage is done 1 month after the end of fermentation.
Top Tip: Best drunk within 5 years from vintage.
We love ourselves a good Sauvignon Blanc but adore unusual whites made with indigenous grapes too! Check out Baia’s Wine Krakhuna White 2020.
