OVERVIEW

Top cuvée 'Côtes de Morogues' comes from the clay hills of the village of Morogues in Menetou-Salon and Domaine Fournier have been winemaking in this region for generations.

This laser focused Sauvignon Blanc wont appeal to the full bodied, tropical fruit Sauvignon Blanc fans of New Zealand but instead offers up interesting herbal, gooseberry and citrus aromas and is about as refreshing on the palate as any Sauvignon Blanc has any right to be. This wine is superb with oysters.

REVIEWS

A fruity white with sliced apple, fresh pear, citrus zest and some honeydew melon on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and a fresh finish. Drink now, 91 Points. James Suckling

FOOD PAIRING INSPIRATION

This steely, vibrant and herbal Sauvignon Blanc has what it takes to cut right through lobster, oysters and seafood like haddock.

VINTAGE AND WINEMAKING

Wine Spectator awarded this vintage 90 points and it's certainly the best of the most recent five vintages. 2020 saw a very good growing season, with a wet, late winter and early spring helping to build up water reserves for the exceptionally hot summer. The Sauvignon Blancs show excellent precision and acidity.

Vinification in temperature-controlled vats is followed by aging on fine lees with weekly battonage for 6 months, in order to 'feed' the complexity and tension of the cuvée.

PRODUCER NOTES

Winemakers in Sancerre since 1926, Fournier are coming up to a century of excellent in Sancerre, Menetou Salon and Pouilly Fume.
Chief winemaker, Frederic Jacquet.
