Biodynamic. Together with its sister-in-arms, Cuvée Edmond, Dix-Neuf is the antithesis of modern ‘textbook’ Sancerre. This jaw-dropping Sancerre is drawn from the oldest vines in the Moussière vineyard (approximately 100 years of age) cropped at Grand Cru Burgundy-level yields (in fact, the lower end of this range). The wine was fermented and raised in 2,000-litre, tronconique wooden tanks for 12 months before a spell in steel, again on lees. Only 500 cases per year get to see the light of day. Importer Notes
“From calcareous marl soils the 2017 Sancerre Génération XIX is a great, pure, vibrantly fresh and tensioned representative of the region and a great vintage. Deep, fine and complex on the very elegant and fresh yet concentrated nose, this is a tight, complex and sustainable Sancerre whose density is lifted by mineral freshness and backboned by extract and a tight yet fine tannin structure. The finish is fresh and stimulatingly salty and exhibits the complexity of 100+-year-old vines.” 94 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate
