Daniel Chotard

Add to wishlist

Refreshing and full-bodied. Typical Sancerre with elegance, well-balanced with good length. To enjoy with a little Crottin de Chavignol.

Aged on the lees, it offers a very pure nose of citrus and white flowers, it is fresh and grassy with subtle grapefruit citrus aromas. The full-bodied and dry palate has a crisp acidity and good length. Refreshing lemon citrus, grapefruit zest and green apple flavours on palate that close in a long saline finish.

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Domaine Chotard's estate is at the end of Reigny village, in Crézancy-en-Sancerre, with a cirque of surrounding hills of clay-limestone Kimmeridgian marls. The plots on these slopes are sunny all day long and the vines sink their roots into springs that run in the basement. The fruit for this wine comes from three parcels of vines grown on limestone, pebbly griottes and marl.

Harvest by hand and by machine. After manual sorting of the grapes, the harvest goes through pressing and cold stabilisation for 3–4 days before light settling and fermentation. Ageing in vats and in barrels for 6–10 months.
