Domaine de Chevailly Quincy 2018

A former Jancis Robinson 'wine of the week', this is crisp and vibrant Sauvignon from the Loire, and great value.

The wines of Quincy (pronounced ‘Can See’) can be a great substitute for a Pouilly-Fumé or a Sancerre, and offer better value for money - such as this one from one of the best domaines, run by owner and winemaker Yves Lestourgie (president of the Quincy growers’ association no less). This is a former 'wine of the week' on, where Tamlyn Currin 'was staggered by how reasonably priced this piercingly elegant wine was.'

Tasting Notes

This delicious Quincy has a similar style to a Pouilly-Fumé or a Sancerre, with lots of zesty grapefruit and spiky blackcurrant leaf, alonside crisp green apple and nettle and flint characters. Enjoy young and fresh, this is a perfect match with shellfish, fish, goats cheese and charcuterie.


Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin) described the 2017: “Gunflint and apples. So crisp and dry and flinty and focused that it's practically a razor carved from stone. Yet it fills the mouth (perhaps more with the rattle of sabres than seduction), and it lifts the palate like a shot of wasabi. Precise and long range.
