"Les Boucauds is one of 14 communes within the Sancerre appellation and is rich with Kimmeridgian limestone-clay soil. The Domaine owns a total of 13.5 hectares of vineyards across Sancerre. The certified organic Les Boucauds vineyards are located on hillsides with a vine age of 30-40 years and they began the transition to biodynamic farming in 2018. After hand harvesting, 80% of the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh fruit characteristics and 20% is fermented in barrel; each parcel is then aged separately for 7-8 months before being blended and bottled in early summer.
JB: Light gold, touch of honey, gooseberry and pineapple notes, vibrant and long finish.
RG: Scents of pure apple fruit, florals. Good transparency of place yet with richness and depth of lees coming from winemaking. Lovely phenolic texture.
CK: Light peach and citrus notes. The palate has real harmony, with elegantly creamed white peach and citrus fruits, cut with minerally energy and fresh acidity, giving it a real sense of panache and style.
Drinking Window 2020 - 2028"
Sourced from several plots all situated in the lieu-dit of Les Boucauds, this cuvee employs close to 50% of the Sauvignon Blanc planted on the estate. Entirely from terres blanches soils -- marls and clays over Kimmeridgian limestone -- this wine represents a pure expression of this site as well as the deft winemaking of Stephane Riffault.
