François graduated from the famous enology school in Beaune, France. After school, he cut his teeth by working at Domaine Bruno Clair. François took over his father’s winery not too long ago and has been turning heads everywhere, first in France and now here. He is one of the first to pick in Sancerre so the acidity of his wines rage. Counterintuitively, the wine doesn’t have the green pepper notes that one would expect from wines harvested so early. I don’t know how he does it, but the wine finds such a perfect balance of power, beauty and finesse.

GrapeSauvignon Blanc
Tasting NotesFor such a forceful and “minerally” white wine, it shows a tremendous amount of beauty and delicacy. There are aromas of lime, lemon, lemon peel, ripe green melon, cucumber, freshly crushed limestone rocks and gunflint. Straight away, the palate of the wine hits you with purity and the electricity of perfectly picked grapes. The wine will feel like it is exfoliating your mouth! So fresh and clean!
