Foucher Lebrun le Mont Sancerre 2009
This is a special cuvée of 2500 cases made by Jean Mounard with our inspiration. The wine is incredibly fresh and mineral, and stands in contrast to this vintage which tends towards richer, heavier wines often with residual sugar. It has good depth, lovely, citrusy fruit, and a classic flintiness on the nose and palate. The wine comes from the villages of Sancerre, Chavignol (near “Monts Damnés) and d’Amigny. The wine was aged on its lees in stainless steel for 10 months before bottling.
