2017 Domaine Fouassier 'Les Chasseignes' Sancerre

Loire Valley, France

Your family get pretty good at taking care of vineyards and making wine for 10 generations in the Loire. The expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape through this Sancerre is phenomenal. The soils are very complex, rich in limestone higher up and deep layers of calcareous clay further down. Fresh mineral and melon nose. She is light-bodied and very dry with hint of something vegetal, but sits very light in the mouth with beautiful green apples. Low acid, with a grapefruit bitter prick towards the very end.

About the maker

Established in 1749 in the heart of Sancerre, Domaine Fouassier is one of the oldest wine growing families in the Loire Valley with a history that spans several generations. Extremely complex soils vary from vineyard to vineyard, some with a high concentration of limestone and deep layers of calcareous clay or Kimmeridgian marl, and some flinty with stones and layers of compacted chalk that contribute to the famous minerality found in the white wines from the region.

For centuries the families have dedicated themselves to preserving and capturing the terroir and the noble Sauvignon grape varietal through an extensive range of appellation wines. The new century began with the arrival of Fouassier’s 10th generation, Benoit and Paul. In continuing to honour the terroir as their ancestors did, the brothers took things one step further, converting to organic and biodynamic farming and winemaking. In 2011, they were certified by Ecocert and Biodyvin, both of whom recognised Domaine Fouassier as 100% compliant with all international organic and biodynamic guidelines.
