Andre Dezat Sancerre 2017 Magnum
A magnum of the excellent 2017 Andre Dezat Sancerre.
The famous André Dezat made the Domaine famous over 40 years ago. The Domaine is now in the safe hands of his sons Louis and Simon Dezat and their respective sons Arnaud and Firmin. Their wives, Sylvie and Nadine, run a very efficient office. Firmin studied in Tours and spent several months at our Californian winery Cuvaison.
The Dezats’ 20 hectares of Sancerre are superbly situated around five villages. Again, low yields, and enormous care in the vineyards and cellars make for only the finest Sancerre. Their 15 hectares of Sancerre Blanc comes from a mixture of 10% flint, 25% calcareous clay and 65% pebbly limestone.
A classic Sancerre with intense cut grass and citrus aromas, and a mineral note. The palate is fresh and crisp, with green orchard fruits, citrus and a mineral streak to the long finish. Enjoy young over the nest 1-2 years.
