LOIRE VALLEY

unnamed-8_edited_edited.png

Domaine Denizot 

On the left bank of the Loire, Sauvignon Blanc shines.

For 8 generations, this family estate has produced  exceptional wines with Thibauld Denizot at the helm. Assisted by his parents Chantal and Christian, and wife Jennifer the domaine spreads over 19 hectares, growing 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Pinot Noir grapes.  Thibauld's philosophy as a winemaker stands out for the utmost respect of the vines and the soils they grow in. 

 

Organically farmed, his interventions are minimal allowing the natural flavours of the grapes to shine creating crisp, fresh wines with lovely mineral tension enhanced by the limestone soil (caillottes) specific to the region.

 

The white Sancerre is the perfect expression of Sauvignon Blanc, well-balanced and lively with hints of juicy white-fleshed fruit. 

The rosé Sancerre is 100% Pinot Noir with fresh, crisp aromas of strawberry and cherry. Extremely limited with only 20 cases available, this elegant rosé is the perfect ‘I deserve this’ wine.

 

Truly one of our favourites, Domaine Denizot produces elegant and vibrant Sancerre of all colours to be savoured and shared.

What to expect

Sancerre

Sancerre, 2022

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

A bouquet of lime and lemon peel, gooseberries, pear, starfruit, straw and crushed rock minerality leads way to a mineral driven, zippy palate with vegetal layers and a nice mid-palate weight.

 Pouilly-Fumé

Pouilly-Fumé, 2020

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

Fruit is similar however, more tart than its neighbouring Sancerre with classic citrus and tropical fruits. The signature smoky character comes from the flinty-clay soils that produce a more tense and mineral style of Sauvignon Blanc.

'Damoclès', Sancerre, 2021

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes

Damoclès is a wine endowed with a particular power and tension. Ripe passionfruit, peaches and a hint of vanilla and chalky minerality dominate this rich and luscious palate which is balanced by its vibrant acidity.
