Quincy Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Quincy is similar to Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, with a racy acidity and mineral, gunflint aroma. The Vieilles Vignes is an exclusive bottling for Jeroboam Wines -- the Mardons allowed Daniel Johnnes to select this cuvée and bottle it unblended. It is made from 80 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines, the oldest on the estate. This wine transcends the appellation. It is delicious with goat cheese and shellfish.

In the world of Sauvignon Blanc, this Quincy is one of my favorite. Not a ton of grassiness. The fruit flavors seem riper than say, Sancerre, but not as over-ripe (and flabby) like some new world examples, and doesn't have the overwhelming... everything like NZ. Clean flavors. Crisp. Refreshing. Possibly one of my favorite SBs.

Crisp. Light, somewhat complex Quincy.

Southwest from Sancerre the charming village of Quincy produces the most irresistibly quaffable, fragrant and friendly Sauvignon Blanc in France. Mardon's old vines cuvee is simply the best we have ever tasted.

It's amazing how different Sauvignon Blanc expresses itself in different terroirs. This comes from the lesser-known area of Quincy. Aromatic - almost in a muscat-fashion and full of white pineapple and citrus fruits. Dry, unoaked and, as the label states, from very old vines.
