Berthier Sancerre Blanc
Jean-Marie Berthier, a highly skilled wine producer from Loire valley, created this estate in the early 1980’s. Today, his two sons Clément and Florian have taken over the domaine to produce a distinctive range of wines, covering a variety of styles and Loire appellations as the estate has expanded. Having previously worked in Burgundy, New Zealand and the USA, Clément and Florian brought a modern approach; looking to produce clean, precise wines which display a distinct sense of their origins.
The grapes for this wine come from two small villages: Sainte Gemme and Sury-en-Vaux each contributing a different soil type; silex and limestone; the optiimum blend for high-qualuty Sauvignon Blanc. The blending of these two terroirs brings complexity and balance to the wines.
The wine is fermented with natural yeasts in temperature-controlled vats to retain freshness then aged on its lees for few months before bottling to build extra weight and character.
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Note: A subtle yet beguiling wine with a refined nose of green herbs, lemon rind and chalky minerality. The palate is surpisingly powerful with a round, mouthfilling texture, elegant acidity and a lingering finish that builds with air.
