Emile Balland, Loire
Emile Balland Sancerre La Pente MAGNUM
A full-bodied, richer style of Sancerre as the wine was partially aged in large, seasoned wood barrels. This slow exposure to air renders a wine with great sophistication. The vines are younger, at 15 years in age, and come from Sauvignon Blanc vines planted in 0.4 ha of south east facing, slopes of clay-limestone soil covered in Caillottes. Classic flinty minerality, enhanced by the barrel ageing, along with zesty citrus notes and inviting Sauvignon grassiness. Fresh, aromatic, and supremely rounded for a Sauvignon blanc, this is a world away from the pungent New-World style, and all the better for it.
