From the Importers' Website: Overview: The Sancerre Blanc from Domaine Raimbault Pineau is a very dry, white wine produced from Sauvignon grapes. The Soil: The vines are planted on 2 types of soil–soft, chalky clay & pebbly limestone. Harvest: The grapes are harvested once they have reached their optimal maturity. Vinification: The grapes are quickly transported to the pneumatic press where the extraction of the must is done slowly & smoothly. The juice is then put into thermo-regulated tanks where the temperature is monitored & controlled carefully so that it remains low (14-16 C). Very long & very smooth, this type of fermentation preserves the maximum amount of aromas of the juice. Aging: After a maturation period on its fine lies, each vintage is blended with precision in order to obtain consistently excellent wines. Tasting Notes: This fine Sancerre is brisk with plenty of fruit in the bouquet & on the palate, as well as vegetal notes of cassis leaf, white flowers, & citrus. The attack is frank, & the mouth feel is rich & round. Food Pairings: Ideal as an aperitif. Pairs well with starters, seafood, & goat cheese.
