Domaine Bernard Fleuriet & Fils Tradition Sancerre 2016
This wine exemplifies the finest expressions of the Sauvignon Blanc grape grown in the Sancerre terroir. This is a blend of 50% grapes grown in clay-limestone soil which gives the wine its richness and power and 50% grapes grown in the stony, calcareous "caillottes" which gives it freshness, vivacity and fruitiness. This is a perfect wine to serve as an aperitif, with seafood, and even with certain cheeses such as the local goat's milk crottin de Chavignol.
Since 1991, our agricultural exploitation developed the vineyard on 20 hectares of sloping land and fallow part of the Sancerre appellation and 3 ha in Menetou-Salon. Planted 35 plots, our vineyards are present on three Sancerre terroirs and exclusively on south facing slopes, southeast. Our lands, very representative of the typical characteristics and diversity of the vineyards are distributed to 10% on Silex, 50% on Caillottes and 40% on the white lands, allowing the assemblies of great complexity and an elegant subtlety.
