This excellent Sancerre from Cave Daniel Ducroix is a reminder of the enduring appeal of Sancerre. Crisp and clean with fantastic purity of flavour and elegant mineral tones throughout. Bursting with ripe citrus fruit and a core of zippy acidity, the finish is long and lingering. Ideal over a light al fresco lunch of goat's cheese tart and salad.
The Ducroux family have been producing wines on the slopes of Sancerre since 1643. Over 13 generations, the family have passed down years of experience, expertise and a genuine passion for the land and vines. Today, Daniel Ducroux upholds these core values whilst adapting to the modern techniques now available in the winery. Daniel tends to the vines and his daughter, Laetitia, is the winemaker. Situated in the commune of Crézancy-en-Sancerre, the 10 hectares of vines are planted on gently sloping hills with the nearby Loire river moderating the cool continental climate. Sancerre was awarded AOC status for white wines produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc in 1936.
