    L2 2015 Sauvignon de Touraine ‘la Noblette’ +

    100% sauvignon blanc. Touraine is a patchwork of sandy, gravel and flinty clay soils, but may in fact be where the sauvignon blanc variety originated; gooseberry and blackcurrant leaf are the most obvious notes here, set against a refreshing citrus bite.

    100% sauvignon blanc. Made by the Fournier family (long established in Sancerre) from old vines in Touraine and Anjou, essential Loire minerality reinforces a lively fruit intensity that one might readily associate with a New World wine. 12% ABV

    L19 2016 Quincy, Domaine des Ballandors +

    100% sauvignon blanc. Jean Tatin and his wife Chantal have twenty hectares in Quincy, planted mainly on the Kimmeridgian limestone that gives their wines such a pure, mineral character. 12.5% ABV

    L8 2016 Sancerre, Régis Jouan +

    100% sauvignon blanc. A nose of nettles and grass leads to cool gooseberry flavours and a smoky herbal twist — a fine expression of Sancerre from this tiny family-owned domaine.

    L7 2014 Sancerre, Gitton Père et Fils +

    100% sauvignon blanc. One of the few wines that Pascal Gitton doesn’t make from a single vineyard site (seemingly in a successful attempt to infuriate the local AOC authority), this is blended from his considerable holdings in Sancerre and Ménétréol; fresh, rounded and distinctly mineral in style.

    £164.02 £13.67

    L13 2015 Pouilly-Fumé ‘Domaine des Berthiers’, Jean-Claude Daguenau +

    100% sauvignon blanc. With racy acidity and precise structure, this is classic Pouilly-Fumé at its most restrained and elegant.

    L52 2014 Sancerre ‘Cuvée l’Amiral’, Gitton Père et Fils +

    100% sauvignon blanc. Pascal Gitton could act as a stunt double (in both appearance and mannerisms) for Francis Ford Coppola, while his single vineyard Sancerre ‘Cuvée l’Amiral’ is similarly forceful — with a depth and concentration reminiscent of both Pessac-Léognan and premier cru Chablis, this presents enveloping minerality and intriguing notes of fennel.

    L18 2013 Pouilly-Fumé ‘Clos Joanne d’Orion’, Gitton Père et Fils +

    100% sauvignon blanc. Pascal Gitton’s single vineyard Pouilly is vinified in stainless steel to preserve freshness and fruit, with an expressive aroma of smoke and lemon leading into a clean, chalky palate.

    L30 2016 Sancerre Rosé, Régis Jouan +

    100% pinot noir. After many years as winemaker for another domaine, Régis Jouan recently started up in his own name. This is surprisingly pale even for Sancerre rosé, but the nose already suggests wild strawberries; the palate has similarly elegant red fruit character and lovely acidity.

    L42 2014 Pinot Noir ‘le Grand Caillou’, Patient Cottat +

    100% pinot noir. Made by the Fournier family, long established in Sancerre; more body than some Loire pinot, with notes of raspberry and spice.

    L32 2012 Sancerre rouge ‘Domaine des Buissonnes’, Roger Naudet +

    100% pinot noir. Barely 10% of Sancerre production is dedicated to red, but the local rendition of earthy pinot fruit is well worth a look. This has an intense nose of Morello cherries, while the palate is supple and harmonious.
