DESCRIPTION
  • In 1981, in the heart of Sancerre, the La Gemiere Domaine was born.

    As custodians of the lands for generations, with some incredible vineyards at their disposal, Daniel and Josette Millet begun work on a 20 hectare empire that would help quell the Parisian wine-bar demand for Sancerre of high-quality.

    Since then, the estate has gone from strength to strength, with Daniel's sons now coming on board.

    This is a classic, perfumed Sancerre with layers of talc, seaspray, lemon barley and passionfruit. It's the perfect foil for a roundel of Chevre. Thus far the 2017 edition has already picked up a Gold Medal at Concours des Vins de Loire.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Winemaker Daniel Millet is extremely picky about the fruit he hand-selects to produce his award-winning Sancerre. Daniel selects only the finest Sauvignon Blanc, which he fashions into thrilling white wines. Flinty yet with a hint of ripe Sauvignon balanced by a rich mineral weight – wines from this Domaine are consistently excellent and represent fabulous value for money.

    TASTING NOTES

    A brilliant yellow robe along with golden tint. An intense and pleasant nose on floral and fruity notes completed with a hint of gingerbread. The attack in mouth is frank with a beautiful vividness, on of citrus fruit and pear aromas where the wood is harmoniously molten.
