Les Bouffants Sancerre Blanc 2018 - Domaine Denizot

 

GRADE

Sauvignon Blanc

PLOTS

Les Bouffants, a limestone and griotte hillside in the commune of Chavignol. Sunny soil with southern exposure.

SOIL

Caillotes (limestone from the Sancerrois region); Griotte (finer and softer limestone) on steep slopes.

PLANTING DENSITY

7500 vines/ha

VITICULTURE

Guyot poussard pruning respecting the sap flow

Respect for the plant, well thought out and applied disbudding

Hoeing and ploughing of the soil

Thoughtful and reasoned approach (no insecticides, acaricides, anti-pests or weed killers)

WINE MAKING

From the moment the grapes arrive in the cellar, they are handled gently and with respect for the fruit

Long and gentle pneumatic pressing

Careful handling of the juice without rushing the must (by gravity or slow, gentle pumping)

Severe settling

Yeasting, only with selected neutral yeasts

Fermentation and maturation in demi-muids (600 litre barrels) and cigars (350 litre long barrels) on fine lees. The barrels come from the cooperage Atelier Centre France, which uses steam strapping and carefully selects the wood to ensure the fineness of the grain and avoid overly pronounced wood markings.

Dry wine

Aged for a minimum of one year in casks

Racking and blending of the half casks and cigars to let the wine rest for about 6 months.

Handling in the cellar is reasoned and respectful, and is carried out only if necessary. This approach aims to preserve the integrity and sensory structure naturally present in our grapes.

TASTING

LES BOUFFANTS is an early terroir with southern exposure. Its limestone soil and exposure give the wines a strong character that is both dense and voluptuous.

On the Domaine, the terroir of Les Bouffants is divided into two parts. The first part (Haut de Bouffants for 75% of the plot) is located on the top of the hillside with a very stony soil but with a fluid and supple earth that works extremely well. The second part (Pente de Bouffants for 25% of the plot) is a steep slope of finer and softer limestone called Griottes. The ripening is faster here with always golden grapes and a lower yield.

Like "Côte de l'épée" for the Damoclès cuvée, "Les Bouffants" is one of the mythical sites of the Sancerre appellation that we wanted to isolate in order to highlight another facet of the diversity of our plot.
