2020 Sancerre Pitaude, Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils

La Pitaude lies on Kimmeridgian terres blanches in the commune of Verdigny, and only 1000 bottles made. It would do well for a few years in the cellar, and its saline, savoury structure will make it an excellent food wine in the years to come.

Tasting notes

The Prieur vines are situated to the east of the Monts Damnés slope, with an easterly rather than southerly aspect. Even with vines at higher altitudes on the slope, a rich, weighty cuvée is produced, with generous ripe stone and tropical fruit, cut with a rapier-like line of acidity. One third of the cuvée is aged in 600-litre tonneau, the rest in steel tank. Youthful, but with great promise.
