The finest Sancerres come from special flint-rich soils known as silex, and Michel Thomas’ best vineyards, within view of the hill-top town itself, epitomise the style. Rich and racy Sancerre with classic citrus minerality and gun-flint character.
Domaine Michel Thomas is a small, family-run estate of 17 hectares in Sancerre’s Sury en Vaux. The wines consistently out perform their peers and have won over 45 awards in the last decade alone. Their finest vineyards are those planted on superb silex soils. They also boast a perfect, sunny aspect and are littered with pieces of flint, said to imbue the wine with hallmark ‘pierre à fusil’ aromas. Meticulous grape selection and traditional winemaking have produced a ripe yet crisp, mineral style with beguiling complexity. This wine was bottled unfiltered for extra flavour, so a light, natural deposit may appear in the bottle. Simply let it stand for a few hours, then make a classic match with seafood or goat’s cheese, or enjoy on its own.
"Epitome of Sancerre. Crisp and flowery with muted citrus notes and, above all, that steely edge"
