"I've been tasting a ton of Sancerre in the spring and summer of 2017, and easily one of the finest efforts comes from Fontaine. A wonderful balance of apple sauce and fresh ocean rock, this white dances all over your palate while calmly navigating the strong acid the wine includes. If you're making fresh fish, shell fish, or even a light salad, this wine needs to join the refrigerator. "

Product Description:

"""Cave de la Petite Fontaine" is a family winegrowing estate of 12 hectares run by the Fleuriet family for several generations. The cellars of the domain are situated at Chaudoux village of Verdigny-en-Sancerre, in the heart of the vineyards. Vaulted, made of freestone and underground in order to preserve a regular temperature for the maturing period of all wines, these cellars were entirely built by the family as the generations came one after the other since 1735.

Nice pale gold-color with brilliant bright green hints, intense and fresh nose of citrus, rhubarb and fern with very delicate mineral notes. Very subtle and long mouth, white peach, plum, white flowers and citrus aromas."- Winery
