With 94 points from Wine Advocate, this mic-dropping Sancerre is like few others. It has strength, power, and all the mouthwatering minerality that you need in a white, plus a killer finish of smoke and sea salt notes that echo the terroir. Biodynamically crafted and beautifully oak aged, this age-worthy white is an absolute must and will take center stage at the table for more years to come.
From 20- to 50-year-old vines in a south/southwest-facing vineyard, the 2019 Sancerre Les Romains offers a pure yet intense and iodine-scented bouquet of shells and oysters along with algae aromas. Full-bodied, rich and powerful on the palate, this is an elegant, refined, balanced and refreshingly mineral Les Romains with a long, juicy, pretty aromatic, seriously structured and persistent salty finish with stimulating grip. Impressive, as always. Tasted in February 2021.
