The soils of the Upper Loire, where Sancerre is situated, are of three principal types: Terres Blanches (a fossil-rich marl) which produces wines with bright acidity, Caillottes (small limestone pebbles) which produces fresh wines with nice roundness, and Silex (flint) which imparts a smoky gunflint note. Sancerre contains all three soil types and the whites crafted here are fresh and vibrant with notable minerality. This will be a perfect match for herbed chicken or grilled fresh-water fish.
