Description

Domaine Paul Prieur et Fils Sancerre 'Monts Damnes', Loire, France, 2020

Grape: Sauvignon Blanc, unfined & unfiltered

The legendary Monts Damnés terroir was the first hill in Sancerre to have been planted with vines. The grapes growing here reach excellent maturity and are always the last to be harvested. The wines produced are endowed with amazing substance and express all the mineral richness of their terroir. The precision applied in the racking operations and in the length of ageing preserves the wine’s potential.

One third of the wines is aged in 600L barrels between 2 to 4 years old with the rest in tank.

The Prieurs come from a long line of wine growers. The newest member of the family to take charge of the winemaking is the youthful and enthusiastic Luc Prieur who believes in terroir driven winemaking after completing his wine training in Beaune.

"The Prieur vines are situated to the east of the Monts Damnés slope, with an easterly rather than southerly aspect. Even with vines at higher altitudes on the slope, a rich, weighty cuvée is produced, with generous ripe stone and tropical fruit, cut with a rapier-like line of acidity. One third of the cuvée is aged in 600-litre tonneau, the rest in steel tank. Youthful, but with great promise."

94/100 points, Andy Howard MW, Decanter, April 2022

Drink with the local Chavignol goat's cheese.
