2019 Sancerre Les Créots, Vincent Pinard

Les Créots is found in the relatively unknown village of Thauvenay at the south-eastern limit of the appellation. Its quartz-flecked clay soils are fertile ground for quality-minded producers seeking vineyard expression. For an introduction to the domaine’s whites, you couldn’t do much better than this. It is floral and delicate on the nose. The palate has an agile freshness. This is a wonderfully restrained style of Sancerre Blanc.

2019 Sancerre Les Créots, 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.
