Tight, fine-boned and impressively intense wine - Jancis Robinson's benchmark Sancerre.
The Domaine Jean-Paul Picard et Fils is a family run estate which has been in the family for many generations since 1750. Today they passionately cultivate 14 hectares of vines, all of which are situated on the Bué slopes which amongst the best sites in the Sancerre region. This Domaine has always kept hold of the artisan techniques of the past such as manual harvest yet they embrace new technology in their pursuit of ever greater quality
Tasting Note: Pale gold in colour, the wine opens with bright aromatic notes of exotic fruit and citrus, with subtle hints of minerality and orange blossom. On the palate the wine is full bodied and balanced with a bright crisp finish.
