Roland Tissier et Fils "Tradition" Sancerre 2020 - Loire Valley, France
Very fine, this wine offers fruity (citrus), floral (white flowers) aromas with a hint of minerality.
White Sancerre “Tradition” is made from the unique grape variety of the vineyard: Sauvignon. It is cultivated on clay-limestone, limestone and flint soils planted with vines with an average age of 30 years.
The harvest is carried out mechanically and after very slow pneumatic pressing, the must undergoes a static cold settling for 24 hours. This must is then drawn into stainless steel vats for alcoholic fermentation. This is done at low temperature (around 15 ° C) under control for 15 to 20 days. During the aging on fine fermentation lees, they carry out batonnages (resuspension of the lees, not systematically and depending on the vintage), which provides fat and roundness. This wine will then be fined and after clarification after a few weeks, they will carry out the racking and filtration before bottling.
