Wine tasting note: 1995 Balland Chapuis Sancerre Cuvee Pierre

1995 Balland Chapuis Sancerre Cuvee Pierre

16th Aug 1996 GBP20 Loire Table White

A late harvested Sancerre - the grower apparently discards up to a third of his crop in any given vintage because he dislikes the flavours of botrytis!
Rich and aromatic with aromas and flavours of lychees and bananas.
Medium sweet, light and elegant with a touch of oak, and a finish of caramel and nuts.
Very well balanced - ideal with pate.

Wine Tasting: Fine wines - August
