Product information

Description

Any lover of Loire wines will already know the name of Jean-Marie Berthier, our Sancerre specialist whose wines we have listed since the beginning. Recent years have seen sons Clément and Florian join the winemaking team, and the developments have been very exciting to follow. In the late 1990s the family took on ten hectares of vines at Montbenoit in the Côteaux du Giennois once worked by grand-père Berthier, and we were very impressed by the new bottling. Frost is a perennial threat in the eastern Loire, but the Sauvignon Blanc here captures Pouilly flintiness with Sancerre fruit at a significant saving on these illustrious neighbours!
Lifted, perfumed nose of Conference pear and crisp apple. The palate has classic Loire race and poise; fresh pear and apple, notes of blossom, pure 'chalky' minerality beneath. Very stylish.
