2015 Sancerre “Clos des Bouffants”

Domaine Roger Neveu

2015 Sancerre “Clos des Bouffants” Domaine Roger Neveu - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $24.00

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
