Description

Domaine Chotard Sancerre Cuvée Marcel Henri 2017

Domaine Chotard Sancerre Cuvée Marcel Henri is perfectly understated, unlike the oaky giant Sancerres you might usually find.

Pale yellow colour. The nose is a medley of melon, grapefruit and white pear aromas with a hint of wet stones. There’s no end to this wine’s depth and finesse. Full and complex palate of melon, gooseberry, grapefruit and lime citrus flavours with a saline minerality that cuts through cleanly.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Domaine Chotard’s estate is at the end of Reigny village, in Crézancy-en-Sancerre, with a cirque of surrounding hills of clay-limestone Kimmeridgian marls. The plots on these slopes are sunny all day long and the vines sink their roots into springs that run in the basement.

The fruit for this wine comes from vines with an average age between 50–60 years-old that complement each other perfectly. The vines are from two of the oldest plots on the estate: Les Plates and Les Marnes. Les Plates has a more solar terroir on limestone soil from the Lower Kimmeridgian, vine plantings by Marcel (Daniel’s father). Les Marnes has a cooler terroir over marly soil from the Upper Kimmeridgian, vine plantings by Henri (Daniel’s uncle).

After a manual harvest and fermentation, the wine ages for 18 months to synthesise the wisdom of these old vines.
