2020 Domaine de Carrou Sancerre
Loire Valley, France
The amazing Dominique Roger manages Domaine du Carrou in Bué, one of the 14 communes in the Centre-Val de Loire that is located in the Sancerre appellation. Since the 17th century, 8 generations of the Roger family have produced wines in the Bué area of Sancerre, which is known for exceptional terroir and producing complex wines. The extraordinary aromatics that you are used to are still there (green apples, pear and jasmine) but the palate reveals incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, a juicy core and a super lively finish capped off with a crisp, mineral finish.
