Domaine Moreaux has been making wine since the 16th Century. It is located in Chavignol, a small village within the Sancerre appellation, also known for Frances' most famout Goat Cheese, the Crottin de Chavignol. A refreshing, dry wine with flavours of nettles, asparagus and gooseberries on the palate. Great the Goat Cheese!
The classic Sancerre wine is white, bracingly acidic, and has pungent aromas of gooseberries, grass, nettles, and a hint of stony minerality. Richer, riper examples – particularly those from warmer, west-facing sites with chalky soils – often show fruitier notes of passionfruit and lemon peel.
