Domaine Berthier - L'Instant "Sauvignon Blanc" 2019

$27.00

The “L’Instant” Sauvignon Blanc is crazy electric, bursting out of the glass with brilliant fruit purity. 

For several generations now, the Berthier family has farmed their vineyards in central Loire. At the beginning of the 1980s, Jean-Marie Berthier created, from scratch, the Domaine des Clairneaux in the Sancerre appellation. In 1998 the Estate expanded with the takeover of the Domaine de Montbenoit in the Coteaux du Giennois, inherited from Jean Marie’s grandfather's vineyard. After travelling the world, the last generation is back on family soil. Clément, a former cellar master in the USA, is now devoted to winemaking and marketing. Florian, with his experiences in Burgundy and New Zealand, manages the vineyard. The vines grow on clay-limestone soil, grapes are hand-harvested then delicately pressed and the juice obtained is allowed to settle for around 36 hours. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally at a controlled temperature (15-18°C). 

The bouquet is crazy electric, bursting out of the glass with brilliant fruit purity. Exotic tropical fruits and lime zest precede white florals and flint minerals. The palate races around the palate with juicy pears, quince and yuzu citrus, and a clean oyster shell influence that lingers for ages. It can be paired with roast chicken, Thai beef salad, pork belly, creamy bacon carbonara and prawns. You can drink it now by the bottle or cellar it up until 2025+. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Coteaux du Giennois.
