Domaine Michel Thomas Sancerre Silex 2017

Sancerre AOC

The finest Sancerres come from special flint-rich soils known as silex, and Michel Thomas’ best vineyards, within view of the hill-top town itself, epitomise the style. Rich and racy Sancerre with classic citrus minerality and ‘gun-flint’ character.

Domaine Michel Thomas is a small, family run estate of 17 hectares in the Sancerre’s Sury en Vaux. The wines consistently out-perform their peers and have won over 45 awards in the last decade alone. Their finest vineyards are those planted on superb silex soils. They also boast a perfect, sunny aspect and are littered with pieces of flint, said to imbue the wine with hallmark ‘pierre à fusil’ aromas. Meticulous grape selection and traditional winemaking have produced a ripe yet crisp, mineral style with beguiling complexity. From a top vintage, the wine was bottled unfiltered for extra flavour, therefore a light, natural deposit may appear in the bottle. Simply let it stand for a few hours, then enjoy with seafood or goat’s cheese.

"Classic fine Sancerre. It’s subtle, elegant, refined – a superb food wine" Jehan Sacaze
