Daniel Chotard, Sancerre
The Chotard's have been making wine in Sancerre for two hundred years. The current 'Chotard' at the helm is Daniel, an interesting guy who's penchant for learning extends beyond wine and into music; he is brilliant musician. In fact, he see's a certain symmetry with his music and his wines saying "Sauvignon Blanc is more than a grape variety; it is a tempo as well".
The terroir of Sancerre is widely regarded as producing one of the greatest expressions of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The hilltop town of Sancerre is actually a collection of small villages that together make up its eponymous appellation, and each village is blessed with varieties of a distinct limestone that imbues a lengthy mineral component to its wines.
Daniel's vineyards are found on the sloping clay, flint & Kimmeridgian limestone ground in the village of Crezancy-en-Sancerre. Although not certified organic, Daniel applies sustainable farming, harvest by hand & only uses organic composts in his vineyards.
Stylistically, the combination of soil type and the fact that Daniel chooses to pick his grapes a little later than most producers result in wines carrying less acidity & a little more richness. He also ages his wines on their lees adding texture to the palate - all of which combine brilliantly with the pure Sauvignon fruit flavours & typical minerality.
