Gilles Lesimple Sancerre 2018

$29.00

This is a lovely Sancerre Blanc made from Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is fresh and crisp, dry and fruity in its youth. With age it seduces you with its suppleness and bouquet. The Sauvignon is characterized by a blend of mineral and citrus aromas. The most typical aromas are nuances of citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon), exotic fruits (mango and litchi), floral notes (white flowers and shrub broom), greener notes (blackcurrant leaf, asparagus), spices (liquorice), and mineral (smoky, flint).

Description

This is a lovely Sancerre Blanc made from Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is fresh and crisp, dry and fruity in its youth. With age it seduces you with its suppleness and bouquet. The Sauvignon is characterized by a blend of mineral and citrus aromas. The most typical aromas are nuances of citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon), exotic fruits (mango and litchi), floral notes (white flowers and shrub broom), greener notes (blackcurrant leaf, asparagus), spices (liquorice), and mineral (smoky, flint).

The initial taste is lemon. It wakes up the taste buds, allowing the perception of spiciness on the tip of the tongue. The second impression shows the suppleness and volume of the wines from the ‘stony’ vineyards, blending nicely with the mineral vivacity of the wines from the flint soils. The white wines can generally be kept for between 3 and 4 years.

Gilles Lesimple is the fourth generation of a family of winegrowers. Based in the well-known village of Chavignol (a commune in Sancerre), he has been a winegrower since 1997.
