The Chotard family have been making wine for over 200 years and this year in fact the reigns were passed to Daniels’ son, Simon, the latest in the dynasty.
Based in Reigny their vineyards, of which they own 16 hectares is a combination of Terre Blanche and Cailleret. Wines made from Cailleret are floral and
accessible young whilst Terre Blanche add structure due to the high amounts of limestone.
Daniel Chotard Sancerre is a mixture of both soils. Yields of significantly less than the AOC rules of 59 hectolitres per hectare. Lots of lees stirring in tank but retaining their emphasis
on purity, tightness and minerality.
Les Cris is the name of the parcel from which this wine is made. The soil is composed of pebbles of limestone that are locally called “Cris” or “Griottes”
Fermentation takes place in Acacia barrels and the wine stays in these barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 1 year old, 1/3 2 years old). for approximately 8 months of full
lees with battonage. Wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. After 8 months, the wine is transferred to tank for 3 to 5 months and then 3 to 5
months in bottle. Total aging is 14 to 18 months. Wine is made by Simon Chotard, Daniel’s son
The Crawford River vineyard lies at the alluvial edge of a volcanic lava flow. The 11.5 Ha vineyard has its roots in an unusually complex, mineral-rich soil base. Gravelly, friable, basalt loam overlays permeable clay which in turn lies above a limestone base created by an ancient, risen seabed.Each block is separately hand picked and processed individually. 2017 was 100% whole bunch pressed to stainless steel. 3-4 day settle in tank prior to racking and inoculation with PDM yeast. Cool fermentation to dry in 100% stainless steel. Approximately 6 weeks on lees post fermentation. After being blended, the wine was sulphur adjusted and protein stabilised with Bentonite and cold stabilised. When ready, the wine is filtered in preparation for bottling, which is done in a single batch to ensure consistency, integrity and ease for the winemaker! Sterile filtered.Bright, fresh floral elements are the primary impression given by this young wine. Spice and texture underpin the soft palate, which shows even structure with lively acidity. Elegant throughout, with hints of oyster shell and citrus peel.
A 71/ 29% blend, wild yeast fermented, with no acid additions; 87% of the wine was matured for 5 months in French barriques (62% new). Follows in a long and proud tradition of exceptionally complex wines that rely on gentle persuasion, not brute force or, if you prefer, seduction rather than rape. The flavours are so attractive and mouthfilling now, it is easy to forget the wine will mature with grace for well over a decade. Screwcap. 12.5% alc. Drink to: 2025"- 97 Points James Halliday
