AOP Sancerre

Domaine La Clef du Récit 2018

€615 Flacon de 10cl

Here we have an elegant wine with a delicate and fruity nose. Notes of pear, honeysuckle and lemon blossom introduce a full and fleshy wine on the palate, with lovely minerality. This white wine concludes with beautifully balanced liveliness and great length, with a hint of white pepper in the finish.

With nearly 10 hectares today, this young winegrower applies great care in the vineyard, working with the utmost respect for the soil and the environment.
