Domaine Andre Neveu Le Grand Fricambault Silex Sancerre 2016 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
From the sauvignon grape whose vines are planted on the Sancerre hillside, a terroir composed exclusively of Silex. Vinification is carried out in temperature controlled inox tanks. Dry and fruity, it shows mineral typicity, and its particular "gun flint" taste over several years. Best served chilled (10-12°C). It goes well with oysters, shellfish, and goat’s cheese, such as the famous "Crottin de Chavignol".
Appearance: Pale gold with a clear brilliance.
Nose: Powerful, the aromas as varied as they are classic: citrus fruits are well represented, (lemon, blood orange), spiced with a subtle hint of boxwood and broom.
Mouth: The attack is ample and tender. A good balance between roundness and freshness shows on the mid-palate. Clean and lively on the finish, the persistent retro-olfaction has fruity notes of apricot and peach, this is a white Sancerre with a forthright character.
