Sancerre "Les Romains" - 2020 - Paul Fouassier
A nose with iodised notes, and aromas of citrus and honeysuckle... Palate: a subtle juice, with ripe fruit, lovely bitter notes, and a long finish. Excellent ageing potential.

A 100% Sauvignon cuvée, from 35 to 40-year-old vines grown organically and biodynamically, planted on flinty clay soils, facing southwest. Manual harvest with yields around 40 hl/ha. Vinification: destemming, direct pressing, and two years of maturation in stainless steel vats. Only a light dose of sulphites is added at bottling.
Paul Fouassier, who earned his viticulture and oenology degree in 1998, worked in several leading Bordeaux châteaux (Pavie and Angelus among others) before returning to his large family estate in 2001. The estate holds 60 hectares, 50 ha of Sauvignon and 10 ha of Pinot, which he manages with his cousin Benoît. The duo represents the 10th generation, drawing the best from the rigour of Benoît...All wines
