"Sauvignon" very characteristic with its freshness and aromas, produces a dry and fruity wine. Typicality is due to the terrain - geological stratum dating from secondary formations which extend on both sides of the "fault" of Sancerre - and Jurassic limestone. Le Blanc grape variety is grown on slopes (slopes up to 40%) and also on limestone plateaus and very stony - called "the caillottes" - that give the wine from Sancerre Blanc this very special aroma.
Bright minerality with prominent notes of ripe citrus, lime peel, golden apple, and melon.
Very pretty Pinot Noir from the charming 2014 vintage. This premier cru Rully from the Cote Chalonnaise throws out a range of complexity from red currant acidity to black cherry suavity.
Jean-Philippe feels this is the perfect example of Meursault. There is a nice touch of gunflint reduction on the nose, which leads into intense stone fruit before tightening up again with a twist of lime acidity on the finish.
The wine Chassagne Montrachet 1er cru Baudines 2015 is a white wine produced in the Bourgogne region in France, by Domaine Gabriel & Paul Jouard. This 2015 vintage comes from the Chassagne-Montrachet appellation.
Stylistically, the wines are uber-classic. The reds, as you would expect are deep, dark and brooding, oozing minerals, black fruits and lovely floral notes (5% Viognier in the blend).
