2016 Domaine de la Perrière Sancerre
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. Bright appearance with green highlights. Well-balanced and fruity on the nose with aromas of white flowers, vineyard peach, and acacia. On the palate, this wine is supple and well-structured and develops mineral and white fruit notes. Pairs perfectly with Zander or pike in beurre blanc, salted sea bass, grilled red mullet, a platter of seafood, Crottin de Chavignol goat cheese.
