Description

The 2021 Le Paradis stands as a radiant jewel within the realm of Sancerre, displaying a profound focus and tension. Its straw-yellow core gracefully transitions to hues of green and silver at the rim. The aromatic profile is a pinnacle of complexity and concentration for Sauvignon Blanc, offering an array of scents encompassing citrus fruits, green melon, peach pit, gooseberry, honeysuckle, and green mango peel. These vibrant notes are harmoniously balanced by savory hints of sea salt, wet herbs, and an abundance of chalky minerality.

On the palate, the wine reveals an astonishing display of power, coupled with electrifying depth and texture, all underscored by a mineral drive that serves as a genuine tribute to the extraordinary terroir of this cherished vineyard. While the current state of this wine is nothing short of stunning, its potential for graceful aging extends for at least a decade, if not more.

For optimal enjoyment, consider decanting the wine 30 minutes prior to serving in versatile white stems at a temperature of 50 degrees. Pair this exceptional Sancerre with something refined and bright, perhaps opting for seafood prepared en papillote with an abundance of aromatic herbs. Le Paradis transcends the realm of a simple bistro Sancerre; it stands as a benchmark, leaving an indelible and unforgettable impression. Cheers to savoring every moment of this extraordinary wine!

Review

Mineral and steely, this is a taut, tight wine. It has the texture to age, bringing out white fruit and grapefruit flavors. The wine should be ready from 2025. Organic and biodynamic.
