Domaine du Nozay Sancerre 2016

$42.00 $35.00

Freshness abounds with this organically produced Nozay. Zippy, grapefruit tang and flinty minerality on the nose along with ripe passion fruit and lemon curd.  It all flows onto a palate; it’s quite mouth filling and luscious but retains a fresh crunchy acid kick. Electric Sancerre that just keeps giving.

More Information

Philippe de Benoist, owner of Domaine du Nozay, has a rather famous brother in law, one Aubert de Villaine, owner of the legendary Burgundy property Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. Given the connection, it will come as no surprise that Domaine du Nozay’s winemaking philosophy is similarly meticulous, espousing organic methods. The Domaine’s vineyards boast a high proportion of prized terres blanches, the chalky-clay soils rich in marine fossils, which are linked to the distinctive flavours and textures of many great Sancerres. When he is not chasing wild boar (a favourite pastime), Philippe devotes his prodigious energy to managing Domaine du Nozay’s fifteen hectares of vineyards, while his talented son Cyril handles the winemaking.
