Of the 9ha owned by Gerard Boulay, 8 of the hectares are on the slopes of Chavignol on Kimmeridgian or “terre blanche” soils (similar to the soils in Chablis), which he works manually and has farmed organically since 1990. The youngest vines at the domaine were planted by Mr. Boulay in 1972 and the average vine age is approximately 45 years old.

“Grassy aromas on the nose – very Sauvignon Blanc with green apples and pears. The palate is bright and zesty, with good persistence and high acidity keeping the palate fresh and lively. Well defined with precision in the fruit profile. Nice lift at the end. ” -Decanter
Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle, then you know why. The new 2021 vintage is here, and it’s a classic vintage in Bordeaux for energetic whites. This is a beauty as always.
A Nicholas Wines favorite every vintage and the perennial by-the-glass Sancerre at Gramercy Tavern and Danny Meyer’s other Union Square hot spots, this is always a fantastic bottle of Sancerre. Super intense aromatics with crisp stone fruits, Asian pear and that signature Bué minerality streak. Vibrant fruit and acidity with tremendous balance and depth. The perfect pair for seafood, and a wine that you can enjoy now and over the next 5-7 years.
This is a gem from Dominique’s single parcel ‘La Jouline’ widely considered the Grand Cru vineyard of Bue. This is one of those bottles that only now is becoming available in quantities large enough to email. It’s crafted from 60-year old vines and given an extra year in bottle, adding incredible layers and complexity in the process. Tiny yields followed by partial barrel fermentation creates a wine with complex aromatics, explosive flavors, and a mineral-laced finish that makes it both incredible at the table with rich cuisine or a great candidate for short term aging.
Simply stunning. An incredible effort in arguably the greatest Sancerre vintage since 1947, Dominique’s single vineyard ‘Les Deserts’ is considered the Grand Cru vineyard of Bue. It’s a dead ringer for Premier Cru Chablis; it’s that complex. How when it’s Sauvignon Blanc? Well, the vines of Les Deserts are rooted in Kimmeridgian rock, the same soil you find in the best vineyards of Chablis. It’s full-bodied with a chalky minerality and a beautiful, vibrant intensity. This will forever change the way you view Sancerre. It really is that good.
Vincent Ricard’s newly released old-vine Sauvignon Blanc, Pierre a Feu is one that should be on every Thanksgiving dining tables must-have list. Pierre a Feu comes from a parcel of Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1950 on a south-facing slope of sheer flint. The wine is super fine, with lifted aromatics of lemon zest and mineral-flecked peach. It’s an elegant, high-toned white wine with a saline edge that makes it incredible at the table as well as a mouth watering aperitif. At $20 it’s a steal, putting most Sancerre to shame at nearly twice the price.
Every year, this wine has proven to be a Nicholas Wines staple. The newly released 2022 Frenzy Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is a fabulous value white wine, loaded with green apples, pears and white peaches plus a hint of spice. It’s juicy and fresh, the perfect cocktail hour white. It’s what is referred to as the perfect ‘pool wine’. It’s great paired with just about anything or just enjoyed on its own.
Even though we’re ahead of the scores, I have no doubt that what I secured for us today will join the long list of high-scoring whites for Groth – this really has it all. Made in 100% neutral oak, the aromatics completely shine here as soon as you open the bottle. Fresh lemon, citrus peel and nectarine on the nose with bright acidity, impeccable balance and a lingering aftertaste that makes you want to come back to the glass.
The Lauverjat Pouilly Fume 2021 was born just across the Loire River from Sancerre, where the soil is rich with river deposits, Portlandian limestone, and Kimmerdigian limestone. It really is the triple threat of soil, and this flint influence gives the wine incredible depth and beauty. It was entered in the Gilbert & Gaillard International Wine Tasting, where it won the gold medal and was called “a multi-award winning Pouilly-Fume made from old-vines” in a review that ended with a simple declaration: “As good as it gets.”
We are super lucky to get a small shot at this one which is usually nearly an exclusive for the AltaMarea group. The newly released 2022 Sancerre “Le Mont” from Maison Foucher Lebrun is zipped up and juicy yet offers up complex aromas of gooseberry, citrus, fresh-cut grass, with a tropical zest. On the palate, the wine is very clean and crisp, full-bodied and laser focused, with a good core and a long, tasty finish that offers a dash of minerality and salinity.
Even extremely well-trained palates have difficulty differentiating Pabiot’s Sauvignon from premier cru Sancerre. But I’ll let you in on the secret. Pabiot’s soils for the Coteau des Girarmes feature some of the same clay & limestone mix as across the river contributing that familiar minerality combined with fresh citrus fruits – lemon, lime but the slight variation adds a touch of white flower to the nose. That tiny bit adds just a little something more complex and interesting then you’ll find in most Sancerre.
