Pierre Archambault, Sancerre, 2012
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The must is cold settled during 48 hours after a slow pressing. Vinification is in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at 18-20°C, followed by aging on fine lees for 5 months before bottling with no malo-lactic fermentation. Pale straw with green highlights and good legs; dry, medium-bodied with fresh acidity. This is a supple, easy access Sancerre. Lots of ripe lemon fruit along with hints of peach and pear and notes of mineral terroir. A super refreshing, perfect spring and summer seafood wine. Lovely with oysters. Tech: 12.5% Alcohol. Spec's Score: 90.
