2011 AOC Sancerre 'Auksinis' (Magnum)

Sébastien Riffault

Regular price $190 1500ml Sale

Sauvignon Blanc from a 1ha parcel in Verdigny, grown on clay and limestone (caillottes). The vines average 50 years of age. 50% botrytis. Aged in tank for two years and then in old wood for another year. Never fined or filtered. Zero SO2.

I haven't tasted 2011 from Magnum (yet!). I had ordered the 2010 but it was sold out, so Sébastien recommended to take the 2011 instead. He said the year was very similar to 2010, and the wine is also quite similar. These wines seem to be great every year, and you also can't really go wrong with magnums! Only 12 came into the country as well.
