François le Saint Sancerre Silex 2020

Sancerre, Upper Loire, Loire, FranceFrançois le Saint is a line of wines from one of Sancerre's most revered names. Established in 1749 in the heart of Sancerre, Domaine Fouassier is one of the oldest wine growing families in the Loire Valley with a history that spans 10 generations. This sauvignon blanc is certified organic and biodynamically farmed, from 35 year old vines grown on a 3.15ha plot of clay soils with flint and marls, native fermented. A broken stone base lines this medium white, with lemon pith and peel, anjou pear, white grapefruit, and ample mineral salts that turn into lingering flint on the finish. Subtly powerful, and will grow with time.Tasted: 15 November 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
