Sancerre Blanc, Domaine des Clairneaux Tasting notes:
Sancerre Blanc is a bright straw coloured wine with green glints. The clean, racy nose reveals hints of grapefruit, white flowers and flintiness.
On the palate, the attack is full and silky, rich and plump with underlying freshness.
Sancerre Blanc is ideal with salmon puff pastry parcels. Foie gras makes an enjoyable and original partner as does Crottin de Chavignol goat’s cheese. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with fish and seafood, or simply just enjoy with friends…
Our family has been living in the Centre-Loire region for several generations. In the early 1980’s Jean Marie created Domaine des Clairneaux in the Sancerre appellation.
The domaine was expanded in 1998 with the acquisition of Domaine de Montbenoit in the Coteaux du Giennois.
After travelling the world, today’s generation has now returned to the family’s terroirs.
Clément, who has worked as a cellar master in the USA, is now responsible for vinification and sales at the domaine.
Florian, building on his experience gained in Burgundy and New Zealand, is now in charge of the work in the vineyards.
Since 2015, we have been developing our activity in the North of the Coteaux du Giennois appellation, in the village of Beaulieu sur Loire.
Today we work in partnership with talented wine growers in order to develop our know-how in appellations new to us in the Centre-Loire such as Pouilly-Fumé and Menetou-Salon.
Our Sancerre white vines are planted on the soils of Sainte Gemme and Sury-en-Vaux, small villages located in the heart of the Centre-Loire area. This white Sancerre is produced from 50% silex soil and 50% limestone soil.
These different “terroirs” provide wide complexity to our wine.
