2016 VINCENT GAUDRY "LA CONSTELLATION DE SCORPION" SANCERRE
Located in the hamlet of “Le Petit Chambre" in Sury en Vaux in Sancerrois, Domaine Vincent Gaudry has passed down from father to son for several generations. Vincent took other the vineyard from his family in 1993 and has been committed to organic and biodynamic farming ever since, obtaining organic certified in 2002, and becamimg the first in the region to be certified Biodynamic in 2004. His reasons for this were motivated by health and respect for terroir. He is very spiritual when talking about his approach to farming and winemaking, with deeply held beliefs about the power of the earth and the expression of the region's unique terroirs. His 9 hectares of vineyards are planted among the region’s three main soils: clay-limestone or marl, flint, and stony, rubble-like limestone. The Sauvignon Blanc vines are 40+ years of age, planted by massal selection from a plot of 90+ year-old Sauvignon varieties. His motto is “Trust in Nature,” which comes across in every bottle, imbued with stony minerality and structure.
"Constellation du Scorpion" is named for scorpion astrological sign and a reference to the sharp Silex-rich terroir where the vine are planted. This wine is vinified in oak with lees contact. This is complex, layered Sancerre with lots of soul. It benefits with air. Give it time to open to reveal aromas and flavors of almond, lime-flower, grapefruit and flinty minerals. The palate is creamy and layered with great depth of fruit and a lingering saline minerality in the finish. Excellent with goats cheese, fish, white meats and poutry. (Importer)
