Domaine du Carrou Sancerre Blanc 2021

$30.50

The amazing Dominique Roger manages Domaine du Carrou in Bué, one of the 14 communes in the Centre-Val de Loire that is located in the Sancerre appellation. Since the 17th century, 8 generations of the Roger family have produced wines in the Bué area of Sancerre, which is known for exceptional terroir and producing complex wines.

A textbook Sancerre Blanc from the village of Bué year in year out, this has become a little bit harder to get ever since it got a huge score in its first year of being reviewed. Now, our little secret isn’t such a little secret anymore. Drawn off the highest in elevation in Sancerre with the most calcareous soil,  it is a chiseled, tightly wound and incredibly complex Sauvignon Blanc, which I’d argue is one of the best in the world and certainly from one of the best and most consistent winemakers in the Loire Valley.

Expert Reviews

93 Points, John Gilman
“The 2020 Sancerre from Dominique Roger hails entirely from his parcels in the village of Bué, with the parcels planted on the full range of terres blanches, caillottes and silex that can be found in this commune. His vines are all at least twenty-five years of age for this bottling, which he ferments and raises in stainless steel. The 2020 version is a lovely example, offering up a pure and quite complex bouquet of lime, gooseberry, fresh-cut grass, a complex base of minerality, citrus zest and a top note of white flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a superb core, a great spine of acidity and a long, superbly balanced and zesty finish. This is outstanding Sancerre! 2021-2030”.

Nicholas Says

The Sancerre Blanc is uncommonly fine, with a brilliant, pale green color and soaring aromatics of green apples, pear and jasmine.
