Original price was: £340.00.Current price is: £239.00.

Sancerre Pierre Morin 2022 is a benchmark Sancerre. From the chalky hills of the Loire, Sauvignon Blanc grapes can produce top class, clean and bright whites that are famous the world over. Jancis Robinson notes: ‘Quite fine, neat and introvert. Tightly laced and bone dry.’ Decanter: ‘Pure, cool and bright.’ Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: ‘Pierre Morin continues to impress me as one of his appellation’s most under-appreciated talents … There is nothing small about his vinous success!’

From one of the best producers, in one of the best parts of Sancerre, Morin’s wine is outstanding; lean and mineral-infused, yet bursting with vibrant citrus and gooseberry notes. A rich, gooseberry leaf style of Sancerre, it is a pale yellow-green colour, bright and clear, with distinctive blackcurrant leaf and tomato stalk aromas. Firmly structured and richly aromatic, it offers flavours of grapefruit, gooseberry and lime with a little minerality, generous and fruity in character and with elegant acidity.

Established on the slopes of Bué, Pierre Morin has joined the circle of great Sancerre winemakers. Humble and talented, he discreetly carves out his own path of artistic expression on 10 hectares of 30-year-old vines, chiselling out balanced, organically grown wines of extraordinary purity. This 2022 is delicious Sancerre and a Tasting Panel favourite.

It has an excellent pedigree. More than 20 years ago Gérard Morin took over the family’s 1½ hectares of vineyard and his son, Pierre, now runs the property. Pierre spent time working in Australia’s Adelaide Hills and at Domaine Dujac in Burgundy. Over the years the property has grown to nine hectares. The vineyards are among the finest and steepest in Bué. Yields are held low through a spring de-budding (one of Pierre’s main changes) and harvesting is by hand with meticulous sorting prior to vinification. Pierre prefers natural methods in the vineyards and winery, avoiding herbicides and using natural yeasts for fermentation. All white wines are vinified in stainless steel tanks and left to mature on lees for several months.

The result expresses all the freshness and minerality of Bué’s caillottes terroir in a pure wine which shows the full maturity of the vintage. The structure remains acidic, elegant. Enjoy as an aperitif, with fine white fish or goat’s cheese, this is a deliciously versatile wine which is drinking beautifully now and can be savoured over the next three years.
