The long awaited 2018 has arrived.
Cyril de Benoist, the second generation of the estate Domaine du Nozay and from a family steeped in winemaking history..Nephew of Aubert de Villaine (co-owner of La Romanée Conti) & brother of Pierre de Benoist (winegrower at Domaine de Villaine in Bouzeron).
An elegant and discrete aromatic display of citrus (pink grapefruit, lychee and lemon) but mostly yellow peach. The palate is fresh cut pear in syrup, grapefruit, citrus & chalky crunch all perfectly balanced. The 2018 is exuberant single vineyard Sancerre and very is hard to beat with its stylish, precise fruit and complex minerality.
Soil of Terres Blanches (clay and limestone) worked 100% Bio-Dynamically with proteody (using music to enhance the proteins of the vine) Vinification : spontaneous fermentations in round stainless steel vats (to preserve the natural vortex) with natural yeasts and very low sulfites (thanks to the azote solution).
Tasting note from Cyril : Tension, minerality, accents of white fruit and citrus. From the attack to the finish, the mouth is supple, expressive and elegant.
"Multi award-winning Sancerre from passionate, winemaking family dedicated solely to the pursuit of making perfect Sauvignon Blanc."
