I could go into rhapsodies and eulogies about this wine…

Sancerre as we all know is just the king of all Sauvignon Blancs,and this wine just exquisite!

This particular vintage is somewhat softer than the 2017 or 2018 ones. It is very smoothe on the palate.

100% Sauvignon blanc grape. It is apricots and quince. Quite citrussy. Still has that gooseberry nose that is so well known in the Sauvignon grape variety. It is bone dry.

It is too good to leave and very more-ish…

Goes really well with all fishy dishes, you know… oysters, prawns, scampi, grilled barbecued fish…

It’s also really gorgeous with goats cheese, ham salads, roast chicken, in fact most white meats.

It’s really just scrumptious!!!

All our wines are unoaked.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

 

This vintage is slightly riper and softer than some Sancerres, while still displaying the clean and pure lemon and fresh gooseberry so typical of sauvignon blanc. There are subtle hints of quince and almonds. One of the very best matches in the world for seafood, especially oysters and delicate white fish and do try it with the classic match of fresh goat’s cheese.

Lovely Sancerre, with crystal-clear, focussed streaks of citrus, especially lemon, and a delightful pear flavour. Juicy finish – try this chilled with oysters or ceviche or fresh goat’s cheese.

Domaine La Gemière Sancerre White

Great vintage.  Beautiful intensity, balance of citrus and peachy fruit.  Tough to find an absolutely amazing Sancerre to blow your mind for this price, but that absolutely does the job and then some.  Hats off Amanda!
