Domaine Roger Neveu ‘Cóte des Embouffants’ Sancerre 2018
Very clear green-yellow. Aromatic expression of limes on the palate. Taste of pears with plenty of minerality and blackcurrant leaf leaving a memory of harmonious wine.
Côtes des Embouffants was singled out by Abbot Poupart in his 1777 history of Sancerre. He said that ‘the Bouffants hillside is one of the best I know in our Sancerre area’ – and nearly 250 years later, his assessment still holds true. The chalky soils are perfect for vibrant, crisp Sauvignon, and the flavours really leap out of the glass. It’s intensely refreshing with citrus and lime acidity, and a hard-to-put-your-finger-on complexity from six months of lees ageing. Ideal with a classic goat’s cheese tart.
