Pierre prieur Sancerre chene marchand white 2020


The Pierre Prieur Sancerre Chene Marchand white wine, cultivated in the Chêne Marchand plot in the commune of Bué, stands out as one of the finest caillottes plots in the Sancerre region. This challenging southeast-facing terrain ensures that the vine reaches deep into the soil for nourishment, resulting in very low yields that intensify the flavor of the Sauvignon grapes. The wine exudes aromas of white and citrus fruits, presenting a harmonious blend of liveliness and richness upon entry. Its structure is notably defined on the mid-palate, leading to a finish that imparts an impression of freshness, complemented by a saline note that adds finesse and length to the overall experience. Made from 100% Sauvignon grapes, this wine is best enjoyed at a temperature of 10-12°C and is particularly well-suited for pairing with cheese. It has a cellar-aging potential of up to five years. In terms of taste, the wine is dry, featuring notes of pear, peach, and a hint of slate flavor. It's medium-bodied with high acidity, making it a versatile choice to accompany spicy foods, pork, and goat cheese.
