Francois Le Saint Sancerre Silex 2019

Excl. tax

Lean and mineral driven, this is shaped and led by broken, struck stones, with supporting roles of lime pith, pear skin, white grapefruit riding an earthy clay base to a lingering saline finish. The silex gives a brooding, flinty edge to this wine.

This is the exclusively biodynamic label of one of Sancerre's most esteemed producers. The estate of François le Saint is totals 56 hectares of which 5.5 are dedicated to Sancerre. The wines are organically grown in kimmeridgian marls from vines that are 25-35 years old, and in the year 2000 they switched to entirely biodynamic harvest and vinification.

François le Saint is a line of wines from one of Sancerre's most revered names. Established in 1749 in the heart of Sancerre, Domaine Fouassier is one of the oldest wine growing families in the Loire Valley with a history that spans 10 generations. This sauvignon blanc is certified organic and biodynamically farmed, from 35 year old vines grown on a 3.15ha plot of clay soils with flint and marls, native fermented.
