Sancerre Terres Blanche 2017 M&E Roblin 12.5% 75cl

The wine style is very pure, fruit forward yet fine and really top quality. Matthias & Emile the 4th generation taking over from their father and bringing new ideas to move the family Domaine forward. They have 19 hectares with a terroir made up of Kimmeridgian and Portlandian chalky clay Terres Blanches across 45 separate parcels of vines on the slopes around the villages of Maimbray and Sury-en-Vaux. Their vineyards, planted with 85% Sauvignon Blanc & 15% Pinot Noir, are worked sustainably, organically where possible so no insecticides and no anti-rot treatments. Grass grows between the vines to help combat erosion and improve ripeness; green harvesting restrains yields. The soil around the vines is worked to encourage better microbial activity. It is easier and cheaper to treat the vineyards with herbicides but the result is a barren, lifeless soil and they believe poorer quality grapes. In the winery, intervention is minimal, no pumping and long lees aging.
