Pure, fruit-forward and fine.

Following on from 2017, 2018 was another warm vintage supplying richer-style wines. This has super ripe melon and pear fruit balanced by a pithy grapefruit edge to finish as the grapes were picked early to maintain their freshness.

The small wine village of Maimbray just to the north of Sancerre itself is home to both Domaine Roblin and Domaine du Pré Semelé. In fact the Roblins are just across the road from the Raimbaults at Pré Semelé with a similar story of two brothers – Matthias & Emile – the 4th generation taking over from their father and bringing new ideas to move the family Domaine forward. They have 19 hectares with a terroir made up of Kimmeridgian and Portlandian chalky clay (Terres Blanches) across 45 separate parcels of vines on the slopes around the villages of Maimbray and Sury-en-Vaux. Their vineyards, planted with 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Pinot Noir, are worked sustainably, organically where possible; crop cover on rows to help combat erosion, soil work and green harvesting to restrain yields and improve ripeness. In the winery, intervention is minimal, no pumping and long lees aging. The wine style is very pure, fruit-forward yet fine and really top quality.

Produced from the family's 19 hectares of vines growing in 'terres blanches' - chalky clay - soil. Vineyards are worked sustainably, organically where possible. It was cool-fermented in stainless steel and aged upon its lees for 5 months.

Would work deliciously with a well-ripened Brie or Camembert.
