This wine has pungent aromas of gooseberries, white flowers, meyer lemon, and stony minerality. The silex terrior gives this wine it’s wet stone and gunflint notes. The palate is crisp, fresh, and balanced with nice acid.
Based in Verdigny, within the Appellations of Sancerre and Menetou-Salon, the Cherrier brothers farm 20 hectares of vines spread out over five different villages around Sancerre and 10 hectares in Menetou-Salon. The diversity of vineyard sites allows them to blend Sauvignon Blanc from the three types of typical Sancerre terroir to create harmonious and balanced wines. Silex (flint) brings minerality and….well… flintiness. Terre Blanche, or Kimmeridgean marl (clay with limestone underneath) brings richness, and Caillottes (gravelly limestone) brings acidity.
