Domaine Fouassier, Sancerre Le Fort 2022 (France)

CVC PICK

Producer Notes: The Fouassier family is one of the oldest winegrowing families in the village of Sancerre. Benoit and Paul Fouassier, cousins at the head of the estate today, are the 10th generation of Fouassier to have worked the estate's vines since 1742. The Fouassier family pioneered vinification by lieu-dit in the early 1980s. Since then, their work has focused on selecting the best parcels to express in the bottle the taste of the terroir on which the vines flourish. All work is carried out as naturally as possible, which is why the estate turned to organic and biodynamic farming over 15 years ago.

Sur Les Forts comes from a 4.45 hectare vineyard in the heart of Sancerre. Vines with an average age of 25 years are grown in soils with limestone from Buzan├žais and limestone "lites superieurs" on lower "Kimmeridgien". The vineyard is cultivated using organic and biodynamic methods.

100% Sauvignon Blanc, grapes go through pneumatic pressing and undergo spontaneous fermentation with native yeast. The wine is aged for one year on the lees in stainless-steel tanks. Work in the cellar is based on the lunar calendar.

TASTING NOTES:
Exotic nose with notes of mango, honey and spices. Ample, almost mellow, mouthfeel, balanced on the edge by a slight sparkle of acidity which brings peps to the whole. Spicy yet smooth finish.
