The delicate tropical fruit aromas (a proof of ripe Sauvignon grapes) and clean mineral and fruity palate testify to La Côte des Monts Damnés' pedigree as an exceptional wine from one of the finest slopes in the Sancerre appellation.
-For 10 generations, the family has devoted its passion and values to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir to craft wines of unique expression. Each member of our family, Jean-Marie Bourgeois, Arnaud, Lionel & Jean-Christophe, brings its knowledge and expertise to our wine Estate. Rooted to our beloved village of Chavignol, on the greatest terroirs of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé, we work on a mosaic of many vine plots. Each plot is isolated and worked in respect of its origin to reveal, in the most precise and true way, the expression of its terroir - either Kimmerigdian marls, Flint or Limestone Clay soils.
“A light brioche note carries alluring straw, white peach and verbena flavors, with a light melon rind hint adding to the racy finish. Pretty, delivering length and cut. Drink now through 2019.”
