    Description

    Bright citrus of Meyer lemon and lime bordering almost on tree fruit like apricots and gooseberry complete the palate. There’s a hint of chives, beeswax, and a distinct minerality to remind you this is definitely from Sancerre.

    ''The Pierre Morin VV Sancerre offers up a bright and classic nose of lime, gooseberry, fresh-cut grass, a fine base of limestone minerality, a hint of white pepper and a top-note of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and snappy, with a rock solid core of fruit, great mineral drive, a serious jolt of electric acidity and a very long, complex and well-balanced finish.'' - 92 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar (Previous Vintage Review)

    ''Fresh, crisp textures and a finish of white fruits.'' - 91 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine (Previous Vintage Review)

    ABOUT THE PRODUCER

    Morin works with the ideology that great wine can only be made from low yields and grapes harvested by hand. In every vintage (with his severe pruning and selection at harvest); on average, Morin has a meagre 40 hl/ha. The proof is in the textured, terroir-driven Sancerre he produces. This small family-run domaine lies in Bué, arguably the most prestigious village in the whole of Sancerre. Since Pierre Morin, Gérard’s son, took over in 2004 the domaine has gone from strength to strength.

    Harvest is all done by hand with meticulous sorting prior to vinification. Pierre prefers natural methods in the vineyards and winery, avoiding herbicides and using natural yeasts for fermentation. All whites are vinified in stainless steel tanks and left to mature on lees for several months. Only the red Sancerre is aged for 12 months in two to four year-old barrels. For the straight Sancerre, 90% of the fruit is from the village of Bué, where the soil is a mixture of clay-limestone and gravelly topsoil, and the average age of vine is over 30 years. This is the leaner of his wines and a superb example of Sancerre.
