La Poussie Sancerre Blanc

2009

Sancerre

Of all the centuries-old growths which dominate the majestic river Loire, La Poussie is the one whose reputation remains unblemished. Its origins can be traced back to the Capetians, as witnessed by a document dating from around 1040.

Nearer our time, Honoré de Balzac wrote the following about these Sancerre vineyards: “the country possesses several growths of generous wines quite similar to the wines of Burgundy, which are rapidly consumed in the Parisian cafés.”

The exceptional vineyard site with its natural amphitheater of an almost perfect semi-circle of 180° make it one of the most unique in the world.

Winemaking

Selective vinification after slow pressing, depending on the origin of the must. Thermo-regulated fermentation. Raised on fine lees and blended after eight to ten months in the vats.

Tasting Notes

La Poussie produces a light, fruity, dry and vigorous Sauvignon Blanc, infused with the clay and limestone soil.
