Intensely fruity and mouthwateringly good!

A classic Sancerre with ripe gooseberry fruit and zesty acidity. The style is full and round yet fresh and well-balanced. 

Since inheriting Domaine du Pré Semelé from his father Rémy, Clément Raimbault, in partnership with his brother Julien, has transformed it into a rising star of Sancerre. Fastidious, verging on obsessive, he is driven to make the very best Sancerre possible from his family's 20ha estate. The vineyards lie on clay-limestone (mostly Kimmeridgian marls with some Portlandian limestone) near Maimbray, to the north of the village of Sancerre, and are carefully managed following the principles of reasoned agriculture. Although not the largest or most famous Sancerre producer, and possibly because of this, Clément's passion is supported by intricate winemaking skills resulting in wines that faithfully communicate their beautiful terroir.

Julien and Clément manage 20 hectares of vines across 60 different parcels, three quarters of Sauvignon Blanc and one quarter Pinot Noir. Soils are primarily the classic ‘terres blanches’ clay-chalk, a heavier soil which gives the wines a ripe fruit character and some caillottes. Very modern well-equipped stainless steel cellar allows them to control the temperature during fermentation and later storage in tank prior to bottling.

Fish, shellfish of course, white meats, salads and most vegetarian dishes.
