With a straw gold hue and a light green meniscus, this Sancerre is a clean, pure expression of the region. Honeysuckle, meyer lemon, and wet stone aromas continue on the palate with the addition of gooseberry, flint, and a lightly herbaceous finish. Beautifully structured, the Fournier Sancerre Les Belles Vignes Blanc is the rare combination of Sancerre that can be drunk young but will also soften a bit with a couple years of cellaring.
The bright, fresh, and often mineral driven flavors of Sancerre are best suited to light aperitif’s or shellfish dishes. Raw oysters, lightly flavored clams or cooked mussels, or summer salads are all excellent choices to eat with this wine.
The Fournier family has been making wine since the 1800’s, and has risen to become one of the most important Domaine in the Sancerre region. Their Les Belles Vignes offering is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from their estate, taken from 20+ year old vines planted in limestone, clay, and flint. These soils help to produce the wet stone minerality that Sancerre is so well known for. This wine goes through no malolactic to keep its fresh nature, though it also spends time on the fine lees to create a richer and more complex texture.
Domaine Fournier is managed by Claude Fournier and his brother Jacques. Claude is also the winemaker. A third brother, Daniel is the owner and chef of the restaurant La Tour on the square in Sancerre.
