Michel Thomas Sil`ex Sancerre 2016
Sauvignon Blanc | France
Ahhhh, this glorious, tangy, minerally Sauvignon Blanc from the near perfect 2016 vintage is absolutely going to blow your mind. Grown in a combination of Silex, Terre Blanche and limestone soils, this combines fruit from their very best vineyards and is blended to perfection. This is a tiny production wine (400-500 cases every year) and only a fraction of that ever hits the states!
Domaine Michel Thomas farms 42 acres of the gorgeous rolling hills of Sancerre in 4 different areas surrounding the village. Their Sil’ex bottling is their top bottling, showing off concentrated citrus, tart apple and fresh herbs as well as gunflint and limestone minerals. It strikes that perfect mouthwatering balance between the two that is essential to the best Sancerre. There is nothing quite like it in the world.
Trust your wine merchant...stock up on this one, it comes with our highest recommendation. While it lasts…! .
