Review

La Chatellenie is an agile and lively and dynamic Sancerre, but also sumptuous and, for this reason, is extraordinarily good value. Fragrant, thanks to vinification in stainless steel only, and at the same time full-bodied, thanks to a few months on the lees. Produced from agriculturally sustainable cultivation, this white wine from the Loire comes from the characteristic vineyards located on clay and siliceous soils, rich in flint. It is a fresh, citrusy and very mineral white wine. It exudes young, delicate aromas of citrus peel, yellow fruit and aromatic herbs, with the typical hints of flint that characterise this area, which produces the world's greatest Sauvignon Blancs. The flavour is soft, juicy and fresh at the same time, with good fruit and great sapidity, with a long mineral persistence.
