Château de Thauvenay Sancerre 2011

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

In order to respect the environment and to allow the better expression of the terroir, the vineyards are cultivated using 'lutte raisonne', using as few chemicals as possible and working with the nature. Located across from the chateau and just 500 meters from the vines, the ancient vaulted cellars lie under the chateau's XIIth century Roman chapel. The chapel itself is built on the site of a Gallo-Roman temple and springs (vestiges of which are preserved at the Museum of Bourges). These well-ventilated cellars, with ideal natural hygrometry, maintain a year around constant temperature that is perfect for the maturation and conservation of wine. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: ...
