2018 Sancerre Blanc, Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils

Luc Prieur’s Sancerre Blanc is one of the best value in the appellation - detailed, balanced, so refreshing, and admirably ageworthy. It comes from parcels dotted around the village of Verdigny and is a blend of the three major soil types found in the region: caillotes, silex and terres blanches. The 2018 has a generous depth of ripe green fruit and a wonderfully open nose. Ripe, fresh, and so enticing.

2018 Sancerre Blanc, Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils
Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils

Luc Prieur took over the running of his family estate in Verdigny, Sancerre, at the age of 21, having finished his studies in Beaune. Over the past few years he has taken this well liked, classic producer of reliable Sancerre to the very top of the appellation, with its name now whispered about among the greats of Sancerre. His single vineyard wines in particular have earned him plaudits. Through his dedication in the vineyard, and the use of gentle techniques in the cellar, he is coaxing fine expressions from his distinctive terroirs, and offering wines of outstanding value.
