2018 Sancerre Le Château, Vincent Pinard

Le Château is one of the best sites in the village, nestled in the heart of Bué, just north of Le Grand Chemarin and Chêne Marchand, on Kimmeridgian marl. The wine is tense and powerful with a racy richness and weight. Ageing in oak barrels (none new) gives this Sauvignon Blanc a roundness that works so well with the natural power of the site and this vintage.

2018 Sancerre Le Château, Vincent Pinard
Vincent Pinard

Brothers Clément and Florent Pinard are not only some of the greatest winemakers in the Sancerre appellation and responsible for much of its current high repute, they are also some of the most popular among their peers. They are the top producers in the village of Bué at the southern end of the appellation, and have parcels in all the best sites there and in the neighbouring village of Thauvenay. They are the go-to producer for restrained, classical, true terroir-led Sancerre blancs, which are always precise and detailed. And they are simply the best in the business when it comes to the reds.
