Bellechaume Sancerre Domaine de Terres Blanches


Grape Variety : Sauvignon Blanc 100%.

Soil : This wine comes from our “Bellechaume” parcel which has a surface area of 1.42 hectares. The average age of the vines, planted in “Terres Blanches” (white stones) soils, is 25 years.

Production technical data : The hand-picked grapes are pressed in whole and then half are vinified in stainless steel and the other half in oak barrels. The fermentations last for 3-4 weeks. The wines remain separated for ageing, with half in vats and the other half going into new barrels and barrels previously used for 1 vintage, for a minimum of 10 months.

Tasting notes : This stylish, elegant wine shows the stamp of its terroir. On the nose, aromas of white flowers predominate against a mineral backdrop. Energetic and very fine on the palate, the wine offers a lovely array of white-fleshed fruits and citrus aromas before giving way to a long, precise finish.

Food-wine pairings : This wine will pair well with sea scallops. It is also a perfect match with Loire River pike-perch or Crottins de Chavignol goat’s cheese.

Serve at a temperature : of 10/14°C.
