Overview

Monoparcelle 469 is the cadastral plot number for a 0.44 hectare plot of 47 year-old, massale selection Sauvignon Blanc planted on a shallow and gravelly soil 30 cm deep in the lieu-dit of Les Desmalets. Fermented and aged in large oak foudres, it shows that Sancerre isn’t just about young wines for immediate consumption, but that the best sites can rival the richness, depth of flavor, and nuanced complexity of the finest White Burgundy.
