WS 90pts Best Sancerre at Gary's Under $20 $1/Btl Shipping on a 6-Pack
We first discovered the Domaine Grandes Perrieres Sancerre from Jerome Gueneau in the spring of 2009 while in France. This was a real find! We brought in the 2008 last July and blew through almost 75 cases in a month.
We decided this year to double our purchase of the 2009 so it would be in the stores throughout the summer. We just received a new shipment and it's still just $14.99 per bottle on sale! Even with the new shipment we've already purchased an additional shipment to arrive in early September.
We've mentioned in the past that this was a producer under the radar. Well, it's no longer under the radar as the Wine Spectator recently rated it 90 points. The price is the still the same though.
Jerome founded the domaine in 1993 consisting of eight hectares of vineyards. Some of the vines are as old as 45 years of age. The estate is located in Chavignol and Sury-en-Vaux, known for producing a more minerally styled Sancerre due to the rocky soil.
"Very fresh, clean, and crisp. Very round fruit flavors of lemon-lime, even some peach on the mid-palate. Lots of minerality balanced with good acidity yet keeping all of the wonderful fruit through the long finish. Very well-made Sancerre at an amazing price!"
