Sancerre blanc


Its green gold color has some bright and luminous reflects. Its nose is quite expressive and complex. It evolve all along the tasting. It opens beautifully on exotic fruits, green mango, citrus, honey and a hint of menthol. The mouth is powerful, round and harmonious. One can taste fresh grape but also a refreshing and sharp minerality. It is a particularly long lasting wine.

Sancerre Jadis, a true original, deserves an original cuisine that allies local and exotic tastes, principally fish or white meats that play with salty-sweet associations. For example, filleted chicken breast with honey and rosemary in supreme sauce. Try a St. Nectaire cheese or an Oka from Quebec with a little honey, warmed in the oven and presented on a slice of fresh peach.

After pressing, the juice is allowed 2 days of natural clarification by sedimentation. Next, the juice is placed in barrels and tanks. Alcoholic fermentation converts the natural sugars into the wine’s soul while the flesh of the grape creates its rich bouquet. Sancerre Jadis is racked and bottled in accordance with the lunar cycle and is sure to charm your palate – but you must first let the wine pass its first Easter holiday.

“A hymn to great Sauvignons.”
