Sancerre Blanc AOC Cécile Lebrun, 2018
Cécile Lebrun Sancerre 2018 at the time of tasting was much tighter and less aromatic in style – normal at this juncture in its life. It has some wet earth and mineral notes with less fruit on the palate, and a firm acidity followed by a long mineral and bitter grapefruit finish. Given the quality of the vintage, this should open up over the next six to twelve months and will drink nicely over several years. Vinified in much the same way as the Pouilly Fumé, the difference is the source of Sauvignon Blanc grapes, cultivated across the Loire river on the left bank. Vines are planted on Kimmeridgian and Oxfordian soils with some silex.
