Nothing says Spring like Sancerre!

In twelve short days, when the birds are chirping and the trees blooming, you will want one wine in your glass, the 2017 Domaine du Nozay Sancerre.

A Sancerre Showstopper!

Just outside the town of Sainte-Gemme in the northernmost corner of Sancerre, are the steep, bowled vineyards of Domaine du Nozay (not to be confused with Chateau du Nozay).

This organic and biodynamic wine displays the region's chalk and mineral-driven soil — which is no surprise as Sainte-Gemme is the closest village to Chablis.

What do we love about this wine?

We love the bristling energy and underlay of chalky texture - a testament to the biodynamic farming, which allows for pure fruit expression and terroir influence.

Dry, textured and graceful, your glass will fill with notes of muskmelon, lemon zest, wildflower and salty white peach on a bright, almost-rustic frame. Refreshing, it shows excellent typicity that speaks more of the rocks beneath the soil than the fruit above it.

Fantastic!

An additional point of interest: Cyril (the winemaker and owner) knows a thing or two about standout wines; he is the nephew of the legendary Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée Conti (his mother, Marie-Helène, is Aubert's sister). The apple doesn't fall far from the tree!

Simply delicious!

$32.95 per bottle / $395.40 per case
