Domaine de la Perriere Sancerre
Pale yellow color with green tints. The nose is characterized by the purity and finesse of its floral aromas with notes of broom and white flowers mixed with citrus fruit aromas. After a sharp and mineral attack on the palate, this wine offers a nice balance between freshness and depth. The 2013 vintage offers a lovely length on the palate which ends on exquisite white flowers and lemon zest notes. Fresh and crisp with tangy citrus and racy acidity; lively, clean and minerally; long and balanced. 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
The ancestors of Pierre Archambault have lived in the Sancerre area since the 15th century. In the beginning, the huge rock cave dug into the hillside beneath their vineyards was a quarry. Then it was used to grow mushrooms, and after that as a storage area for a sparkling wine producer. Monsieur Archambault’s grandfather was the first of his family to specialize exclusively in growing grapes and making wine in the caves of Domaine de la Perriére.
