Gerard & Pierre Morin Vieilles Vignes Sancerre 2011

loire valley wines, sancerre, sauvignon blanc, morin

 

Morin harkens back to the past, with the certainty that great wine can only be made from low yields and grapes that are harvested by hand. In every vintage (with his severe pruning and selection at harvest); on average, Morin has a meager 40 hl/ha. For us he sets aside his oldest vines from various parcels, including Chene Marchand which make the richest most intense wine he offers. This Vieilles Vignes cuvee is very ripe, complex, and just the paradigm of Sancerre on the nose. Linger over the bouquet, and judge every other Sancerre you experience by this. On the palate it is concentrated, tight, profound, with a perfect web of fruit and mineral tones and exquisite finish
