Denizot, Sancerre 750ml 2018France, Loire
The Denizot family cellar is in the village of Verdigny, although the majority of the vines are on the slopes that connect Chavignol to the butte of Sancerre. Until the 2017 vintage, everything was sold in bulk to some notable négociants. The involvement of the next generation in the form of Thibault, a gentle giant, was heralded with a new purpose-built cellar to commence bottling and commercialising their own wines. The 2018 represents only the second vintage.
Whilst pricing in the appellation continues to escalate out of control, Thibault recognises he needs to prove himself before trying to command such heady prices. For that reason, the wines are well-priced relative to what is happening globally in the region. This may not always be the case once Thibault begins to get the recognition he deserves.
'Crisp and very fruity, this wine is refreshingly textured with great acidity and plenty of zingy citrus. Fresh and vivacious, it is ready to drink.' – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, 89/100
