Domaine Vincent Pinard Sancerre Nuance 2020
From 40 year-old vines grown on Caillottes terroir (small stones over limestone) in Bué, selected from the vineyards of both Petit Chemarin and Le Château. The fruit is hand picked, hand-sorted and then whole-bunch pressed to tank for a cool and slow fermentation lasting about 4 weeks. The wine is aged on fine lees for 9 months in approximately two-thirds tank and one-third larger format, second-use barrels. This shows a big step up in texture and intensity with a hint of smokiness and chalky minerality with notable intensity in aromas and on the palate.
“A more upmarket cuvée than Florès, but still a blend from several sites, this begins with a fragrant nose of vanilla flower, lemon cream and crushed oranges, in a ripe style but still focused and correct. The palate is just delicious, fresh and cool, with beautiful substance, a seamless structure and a fresh acidity pushing forward the fragrant citrus fruits. I find lovely integration here, a wine of creamed and almost exotic intensity, but with lift and structure too, and a long, energetic finish. Very good indeed.” (93-95) points, Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor, February 2020.
