Domaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre 2017

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Loire, FranceDomaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a white wine gem of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley of France. Domaine des Vieux Pruniers is situated a mere 2.5 miles from Sancerre, in the village of Bu, known for its steep, amphitheater-like vineyards, where some of the hillsides approach 65 gradients, and prized for its limestone-rich soils. Christian Thirot-Fournier and his wife tend to their roughly 10 hectares of vines, including 7 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc planted to chalky limestone soils. Together they raise the wine from start to finish, from growing the grapes to bottling the wines. Sustainably farmed, hand harvested. Jon Gilman rated the 2016 vintage 91+ points! Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a pale yellow in color with crisp acidity. Medium in body, it is a clean, minerally, citrusy, racy style of Sancerre, with aromas of citrus, floral notes and stone. It offers clean flavors of lime, nectarine, orange zest, pear and mineral notes. The wine was aged for several months on its fine lees. It is long, clean and refreshing on the finish.Enjoy Vieux Pruniers Sancerre over the next 3-4 years with grilled salmon, fried oysters, sushi, chicken salad and goat cheese.

They are moving toward a more "sustainable" viticulture regime, and no herbicides are used for the majority of their parcels. Jon Gilman rated this wine 91+ points!
