2020 Lay & Wheeler Chavignol Sancerre by Paul Thomas
Dry | White | Still | 14%
Sancerre is the spiritual home of Sauvignon Blanc, where you’ll find the most refined, purest, most ageworthy examples of the grape variety. Domaine Paul Thomas is a small, family-run estate, with just 9 hectares of vines in Chavignol, for many the sweet-spot of the region, and the site of the most famous vineyard here, Les Monts-Damnés. This, a blend from the estate’s vineyards around the commune, shows lots of pure citrus fruit, and is all about tension, texture, and minerality from the deep limestone soils on the palate. It’s a benchmark example of a much-loved region.
