2021 Vincent Pinard Flores Sancerre
Vincent Pinard is one of the most innovative and dedicated producers of the Loire Valley. He has 10 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 2.5 hectares of Pinot Noir, planted mainly on the hard chalky land of the commune of Bué. Fermented in a combination of 95% large oak casks and 5% stainless steel tanks. Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Aromas of pear, green apple and lime have a herbaceous grassy overlay with some asparagus and oyster shell like notes also evident. Crunchy green apple and lime flavours meld into a wet stone, fresh herb and mineral back drop. Finishes dry with crisp acidity and a refreshingly elegant aftertaste that has a lingering oyster shell like character to it.
Drink over the next 3-4 years.
