Sauvignon Blanc 100%, average age of vines 30 years
Do not over chill, serving at 10 degrees Celsius, with delicately flavoured shellfish and fish dishes such as Brochet (Pike) au Beurre Blanc, or with dry goats cheese, such as that typical of the region from the wine-making village of Chavignol "Crottin de Chavignol".
Very pale straw
The first impression is of intense flinty, minerally notes verging on gunpowder. Being typically aromatic, the wine opens up with air, taking on more fruity nuances, in particular of ripe pear.
The structure is defined by wonderful balance. The style is vigorous and frank, with a surprisingly rich middle palate, finishing with lively vivacity. Domaine Christian Salmon Sancerre leaves one with an overall sensation of elegance and harmony
The bunches are lightly crushed as soon as they arrive to the winery. The must is pumped into stainless steel tanks and left to cold settle before the fermentation, which occurs naturally. The temperature of the ferment is closely monitored to avoid any possible risk of oxidation and to retain freshness and aroma. The wine is racked and a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide is made as required. The wine is rested in tank prior to bottling. Domaine Christian Salmon is looking to preserve the typical flavours and aromas of Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre, and no oak treatment is involved in the production.
