La Colline aux Princes Sancerre

The vineyard is located on the left bank of the Loire over 14 villages from “Sancerrois”. The focus of Sancerre winemakers is usually to express the pure fruit flavors of Sauvignon Blanc and the natural “terroir”. The yields of Sancerre Blanc are limited to a maximum of 60 hectoliters per hectare. Thanks to soils scattered with volcanic stones, white wines from this area are: fine, lively and brimming with fruit.

Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Alcohol: 11.5% vol.
Appearance: Gold with bright brilliance and green tints.
Nose: Aromas of “broom blossom” & blackcurrant leaves, often developing later towards citrus and acacia.
Palate: Delightful citrus flavor with floral notes.
Pairings: It is perfect as an aperitif with all cheeses but especially with "Crottin de Chavignol". It's also delicious with sea food & shellfish as well.
