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.

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. This and their meticulous work in the vineyard ensure their Sauvignon grapes always display great intensity of flavour. Michel’s son Laurent has crafted a superb, focused, citrus charged wine in 2019, a vintage that was excellent for Sancerre. The balance between ripeness and crisp acidity makes this an excellent dinner party white, with seafood or goat’s cheese.
"Wow. One of the best Sancerre wines we have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Well done"
