Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

95 DE

Les Boucauds is one of 14 communes within the Sancerre appellation and is rich with Kimmeridgian limestone-clay soil. The Domaine owns a total of 13.5 hectares of vineyards across Sancerre. The certified organic Les Boucauds vineyards are located on hillsides with a vine age of 30-40 years and they began the transition to biodynamic farming in 2018. After hand harvesting, 80% of the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the fresh fruit characteristics and 20% is fermented in barrel; each parcel is then aged separately for 7-8 months before being blended and bottled in early summer.

JB: Light gold, touch of honey, gooseberry and pineapple notes, vibrant and long finish.

RG: Scents of pure apple fruit, florals. Good transparency of place yet with richness and depth of lees coming from winemaking. Lovely phenolic texture.

CK: Light peach and citrus notes. The palate has real harmony, with elegantly creamed white peach and citrus fruits, cut with minerally energy and fresh acidity, giving it a real sense of panache and style.
