Description

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre is pale yellow in colour, the nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes.

The palate of Domaine des Brosses Sancerre is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses

Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989, this is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre :  Domaine des Brosses was established in 1875, ten kilometres south of the town of Sancerre.

However, it was the Girard family who modernised the winery and vineyards on taking over in 1973.

Nicolas Girard has now taken over his father’s estate and, with his brother Anthony, is making wines that are fresh, modern and aromatic.

Both the brothers have travelled extensively throughout the world in search of the finest Sauvignon Blancs and the best techniques for tending their vines.

Vintage information

The beginning of the 2014 season showed promise, with good flowering. The weather was dry, sunny with constant temperatures.

Despite good flowering in June, the summer months of July and August were mostly overcast and rainy, which increased the risk of rot in some areas and delayed maturity of grapes across the valley.

While better September weather was a relief, the effects of the rainy, cool summer made harvest timing tricky and mandated meticulous work in the vineyards.

Vinification

Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to avoid oxidation. No oak was used, but the wine remained on its fine lees for several months to add weight to the palate and round the finish.

Tasting Notes

Bright and pale golden. A fresh, citrus palate has herbaceous notes of hay and nettle. Richly textured but with crisp acidity and textbook minerality. The finish is elegant with typical purity and refreshment of excellent Sancerre.
