2015 Sancerre “Clos des Bouffants”

Domaine Roger Neveu

2015 Sancerre “Clos des Bouffants” Domaine Roger Neveu - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Brothers Éric and Jean-Philippe Neveu are the vignerons behind a recently acquired Sancerre domaine we are excited to present to our customers here in the U.S. The Neveu family has deep roots in the Loire Valley; in fact, records trace their lineage back to the 12th century, in the very same village the current generation calls home.The Neveus began estate-bottling in the 1970s, focusing their production on the historically acclaimed Clos des Bouffants: with its southern exposure, this steep, rocky vineyard had long been recognized for giving impeccably ripe Sauvignon Blanc of great finesse. The Sancerre it yields has a wonderful limestone-derived edge that is kept in check by its concentration and rich, satisfying fruit. The lip-smacking lemon and lime, delightful floral notes, and zippy, chalky finish are the perfect introduction to the domaine. –Anthony Lynch

About Loire

The defining feature of the Loire Valley, not surprisingly, is the Loire River. As the longest river in France, spanning more than 600 miles, this river connects seemingly disparate wine regions. Why else would Sancerre, with its Kimmeridgian limestone terroir be connected to Muscadet, an appellation that is 250 miles away?

Secondary in relevance to the historical, climatic, environmental, and cultural importance of the river are the wines and châteaux of the Jardin de la France. The kings and nobility of France built many hundreds of châteaux in the Loire but wine preceded the arrival of the noblesse and has since out-lived them as well.

Diversity abounds in the Loire. The aforementioned Kimmderidgian limestone of Sancerre is also found in Chablis. Chinon, Bourgueil, and Saumur boast the presence of tuffeau, a type of limestone unique to the Loire that has a yellowish tinge and a chalky texture. Savennières has schist, while Muscadet has volcanic, granite, and serpentinite based soils. In addition to geologic diversity, many, grape varieties are grown there too: Cabernet Franc, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Melon de Bourgogne are most prevalent, but (to name a few) Pinot Gris, Grolleau, Pinot Noir, Pineau d’Aunis, and Folle Blanche are also planted. These myriad of viticultural influences leads to the high quality production of every type of wine: red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert.

Like the Rhône and Provence, some of Kermit’s first imports came from the Loire, most notably the wines of Charles Joguet and Château d’Epiré—two producers who are featured in Kermit’s book Adventures on the Wine Route and with whom we still work today.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
