Alcohol/vol 14%
This wine is full of aromas such as lime, verbena but also delicate mineral nuances (flint). In mouth, fresh touch of grapefruits, almonds, hawthorn and light touch of coconuts. Its minerality gives it a great length. Concentrated, full and fine, equally excellent when young or up to 6 - 8 years ageing. Sancerre "D'Antan" is an excellent companion to fish, shelfish and white meat. Grilled lobster, turbot in a meat sauce and spit-roasted sweetbreads with a truffle sauce: a few delicacies matching perfectly this fine wine. Or tempt your guests with a vacherin cheese from Mont d'Or with dried pears!

Old vines on flint soil have yielded this particularly concentrated, complex wine. The acidity and texture contrast with green-fruit and gooseberry flavors, suggesting the wine will age well. There is great depth to this wine that will be at its best from 2022.

A broader style, yet the acidity ripples through, giving it a laser-like focus for a brief moment, before exuding notes of lemon curd, nectarine, gooseberry and honeysuckle. It glides beautifully in perfect harmony, with a bright future ahead. Drink now through 2027.
