Domaine Poiron Dabin
2020 Matthias & Emile Roblin Sancerre 'Origine'
Clau de Nell
Importer's Notes: Grolleau, a varietal native to Touraine, has played a major part only in Rosé d’Anjou in the past, as it is prone to very high yields. When yields are limited, however, and the vines are very old and cultivated 100...

PRIMA Notes: The 2020 Touraine Rouge ‘Gravouilles’, is 100% Gamay, fermented in temperature-controlled tanks using whole clusters and carbonic maceration. The result is a brilliant-hued red wine with pronounced aromas of ripe...

Importer's Notes: As with the other “C” bottlings from this estate, the grapes for this cuvée are picked a bit more ripe than those for the other basic cuvées. When done for still wines, it tends to make for an off-dry...
This is domaine Paul Prieur’s emblematic wine. It is produced from a blend of the domaine’s different terroirs. Each soil type is essential to the balance of this unique wine. 5 hectares of light limestone, referred to as...
Winemaker's Note:The vines are farmed using biodynamic methods and harvested by hand. Gaston Huët believed this to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards. This ancient, walled vineyard has the estate’s shallowest, stoniest soils. The wines...
