Domaine Christian Salmon Sancerre 2018


Domaine Christian Salmon Sancerre 2018

This is seriously good Sauvignon Blanc from France’s Loire Valley. Very different in style to the Australian and New Zealand savvy’s to which we’ve become accustomed, this quality white is built around a core of flinty, mineral aromas. As the Domaine Christian Salmon Sancerre 2018 opens up, delicate fruity pear nuances emerge. A wonderfully balanced wine, the style is fresh, rich and lively. Team up with delicately flavoured shellfish, fish dishes or with dry goats cheese.

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. 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”.
