La Foret des Dames Sancerre Reserve Vieilles Vignes France 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The roots of the vines draw from two particular terroirs to imbue the wine with its unique characteristics. “Les Caillottes,” which is predominantly limestone, brings finess and fruit notes. “Silex” is deeper, with more flint and minerals that give the wine structure and excellent depth as a serious “vin de soif.” Verdigny has recently become associated with distinctive, high quality wines that they are often referred to as "crus" even though Sancerre is not officially classified like parts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. These 45+ year old vines are some of the hidden treasures that offer us the unprecedented values such as "La Foret des Dames".

This wine made from 100% Sauvignon is a classic version of Sancerre. This is a perfect wine to accompany all sorts of freshwater fish and sea food. Also excellent with cheese. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **
