From a father and son with an absolute passion for their vines, this is a vibrant, mineral, thoroughbred classic from Central Loire. It is, of course, Sancerre – the world’s greatest expression of Sauvignon, a wine of superb elegance and complexity.
"Excellent! One of our favourites – our Christmas Day treat. 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
With a host of top awards, the Michel Thomas estate is clearly making some of Sancerre’s finest wines. It’s been two decades since we introduced this white to our customers and it’s still a bestseller. The small, family run property is in the commune of Sury en Vaux near the town of Sancerre. The estate’s sloping, chalk-rich vineyards enjoy the best possible aspect to the sun, and this and their meticulous vine management ensure their Sauvignon grapes always display great intensity of flavour. Michel’s son Laurent has crafted a superb, focused, citrus charged wine in the intensely flavoured and ripe 2018 vintage. The perfect balance between ripeness and crisp acidity makes this an excellent dinner party white, with seafood or goat’s cheese.
