Sancerre, Domaine Andre Dezat et Fils 2017
This benchmark domaine first gained its reputation under Andre Dezat but is now in the safe hands of his sons Louis and Simon and grandsons Arnaud and Firmin. There are 20 hectares around five villages, 15 hectares being planted with Sauvignon Blanc (the rest with Pinot Noir for their excellent red and rose wines). Yields are low and the wines meticulously made, the Sancerre Blanc combing ripe, expressive fruit with the delicate flinty minerality and citrus freshness typical of the region.
