Château de Sancerre Sancerre Cuvée du Connetable 2006
Château de Sancerre, built in the 10th century by the Count of Champagne, is the most prestigious property in Sancerre, and the only one that can use the Château de Sancerre name. Its sought-after hillside vineyards have been attached to the Château for centuries. The classic estate bottled wines exemplify Sancerre’s sophisticated minerality & bracing acidity.
Really nice herbaceous nose, but with a huge mineral kick on the finish. Was excellent with seafood! It was perfect with lobster bisque (cut through the creaminess), and wonderful with baked cod.
freakin great. crisp fruit falls into an almost steel-y finish. Wild to watch it open up more as the temperature warms just a bit. If you like sauvignon blanc but you want a touch of mineral, this is a must. killed with lobster!
Very nice. Excellent with some classic french mussels
Yummy floral notes and strong mineral like kick to it. Fantastic with rib steak from the BBQ. Mmmm
External Reviews for Château de Sancerre Sancerre Cuvée du Connetable
Wine Tasting NotesClear, pale gold in color. Nice intensity. Floral notes dominate the first nose giving finesse and elegance. Once the wine is allowed to breathe, slight nuances of vanilla surface and open up to fruity aromas of yellow peach and plum. Soft attack, nicely rounded with lots of richness, yet still very fresh. Notes of fruit dominate (apricot, yellow peach). Harmonious on the palate with excellent length.
