Sancerre, Domaine Franck Millet, Loire Valley, France 2015
Franck Millet owns 67 acres of winery here and is the fourth generation of his family on the domain. He makes four wines here, two white wines of the Sauvignon Blanc grape, one rosé and a red wine, both from Pinot Noir. The white wines are very characteristic for this part of the Loire; flawless, crisp and dry with a lot of minerality.
This Sancerre is powerful in the nose with aromas of limestone and clay, characteristic of the region this wine originates. A white wine with a lot of juice and fresh acidity are balanced with the round tones. It is vinified entirely in stainless steel to preserve the wonderful citrus and slightly grassy aromatics and gentle mineral finish. The wine makes a great aperitif and works well with rich appetizers.
