Domaine Fouassier Les Chasseignes Sancerre

Sourced from an 100% certified organic and biodynamic, estate-owned single-vineyard due west of the village of Sancerre. Fresh, with Meyer lemon and Key lime aromas. The clean acidity showcases straw and freshly cut grass. Ripe, with plenty of depth as it is layered with lemon curd, star fruit, and gooseberry notes, followed by a stony accent on the mouthwatering finish. Fermented in stainless steel at a constant cool temperature to maintain the freshness of the fruit, yet aged on the lees for several months to add complexity. This will drink wonderfully over the next 4-5 years. Serve alongside grilled fish and vegetables.

Forbes - Excellent

Aromas of tarragon, Anjou pear and lemon peel. Medium-full with excellent ripeness, good acidity and impressive persistence. Very appealing and approachable with very good complexity. Enjoy over the next 3-5 years.

Wine Enthusiast - 88 pts

Made from vines between 20 and 40 years old, this wine is both fresh and ripe. Apple as well as citrus flavors give it a tangy streak. Made from organic and biodynamically grown grapes, it is all fruit, bright and with an attractive, perfume aftertaste.

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar - 91 pts

Expressive bouquet of nettles, gooseberry and flinty minerals. Concentrated and opulent, with a juicy lichee flavor lending a touch of sweetness to this dry wine. Svelte on the palate, with finely integrated chalky acidity. Subtle vanilla and yellow bell pepper notes linger on the slightly phenolic finish. A complete wine.
