Domaine Quintin Rive Droite 2015

Coteaux du Giennois AOC

Love Sancerre, but can’t justify splashing out? Look to neighbouring Giennois, the vineyards of which also grow fine Sauvignon on the same limestone soils. But it’s still little known, so wines are superb value. Enjoy this stony, lime fresh white.

As the search for value continues, the sleepy little wine town of Giens in Central Loire is coming into its own. It has a similar soil and climate to neighbouring Sancerre yet is currently less well known. On a recent visit there, our Buyer said this was one of the stand-out wines of the trip, quite a feat in the breathtaking 2015 vintage. In 1991 the Quintin brothers re-established 10 hectares of vines on one of the district’s best former sites, a century after the original vineyard was wiped out by phylloxera. Now the Quintins’ vines produce intensely flavoured grapes and a classic Sauvignon with its lime peel, freshly cut grass and hint of gun-flint characters. A rewarding choice with spicy crab pasta, goat’s cheese salad or lemon sole.
