Domaine des Ballandors Quincy

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy, the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit

Founded by Jean Tatin and his wife Chantal Wilk, the Domaine des Ballandors estate produces a Quincy that is a superb value alternative to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume.

A long slow fermentation of around two months ensures the retention of its fine aromatics, while ageing on fine lees fives a subtle yet fuller mouthfeel that beats many a Sancerre in terms of class and long finish.

Jean Tatin is a pioneer in Quincy, and has re-invented the appellation as a producer of high quality, vineyard-driven Sauvignon Blanc.

Jean’s meticulous approach and mastery of this grape variety has influenced many other young winemakers in the Loire Valley.

Domaine des Ballandors has 20 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc vines, planted on the sandy soil over freshwater Kimmeridgian limestone that is characteristic of the region, and gives the flinty mineral flavours that typify the Ballandors wine.

The fruit is sourced from three different vineyards, and the micro-parcels are vinified separately before the best are selected from which to blend the final cuvée.

The deep sand and gravel soils of the ‘Le Pressoir’ site produce very lively and expressive wines, while the old vines of ‘Chamoux’ and ‘Le Clos des Victoires’ produce rich, ripe and full wines.

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost.

This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit.

When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ – Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon Quick View

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.
