Sancerre ‘Clos du Roy’ AC, Dauny

£16.99

This elegant white wine comes from some of the estate’s older vines on limestone terrain, with the perfect south-facing  aspect for maximum sun.

Light yellow in colour, it initially presents typical varietal character with notes of rhubarb and blackcurrant. The wine benefits from some aeration, becoming more complex, with notes of orange flower, preserved lemons and apricot. The palate is confident and fresh with a creamy aspect and a pleasing, slightly chalky grain. Again there are preserved lemon and pear flavours. The finish is lightly tannic and satisfyingly long.

The wine is stored for 5 – 7 years and is the perfect accompaniment to fish, white meat and cheese dishes.

Christian Dauny

The Sancerre region, on the banks of the Loire, east of Bourges, has been growing grapes at least since the 6th century. The Dauny family have cultivated vines on the reputable slopes of Champtin since 1683. Current custodians Christian and Nicole and their sons Benoit and Thibaut represent the 12th and 13th generations here. In the mid-sixties the estate was converted to organic methods for all the usual reasons!
Vineyard size 16 hectares. Organic since 1964.
