Serge Laloue Sancerre Cuvee Silex 2020


Located in the heart of Thauvenay in Sancerre, Laloue is a family run operation that has been making really good wines for a while now. They differentiate themselves from many of their neighbors by making single-soil Sancerres instead of single-vineyard bottlings. This gives consumers a unique look and taste on the impact of soil selections in the region.

The Cuvee Silex is my favorite of the three — the special flinty clay soil gives a jolt of minerality to the wine that the others can’t match and they’re particularly cellar worthy bottlings. It’s probably the reason that last year’s release earned a whopping 94-point score from Wine Enthusiast with a Cellar Selection designate. Expect similar for this vintage when they publication comes out with their 2020 review.

This is a single soil Sancerre with excellent balance and tension and a killer mineral streak that runs through. It’s got great kiwi/stone fruits that mesh with the salinty and a beautiful chalky minerality that all add up to create a silky smooth and electric Sancerre.
