Domaine du Pré Semelé SancerreRegular price $32.99
The appellation of Sancerre lies on an outcrop of the chalky Kimmeridgian soils (Terre Blanche) that run from the White Cliffs of Dover down through Champagne, Chablis and the eastern edge of the Loire valley. These soils bring minerality, power and longevity to the wines. The vineyards of the domaine are 80% Terre Blanche and 20% limestone and clay. The limestone and clay soils, called les Caillottes, produce wines more elegantly balanced, fruitier and fuller for earlier consumption.
