2018 Sancerre Pieuchaud Silex, Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils

Pieuchaud is a flinty-soiled lieu dit in the commune of Thauvenay in the south-east of the appellation. Luc decided to isolate this vineyard after noting it always produced fruit with great maturity whilst maintaining high acidity - the secret to single vineyard wines in his opinion. In a warm vintage like 2018, this stood out for its nerve, vim, flinty precision, and raw charge.

2018 Sancerre Pieuchaud Silex, 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.
