The Chambrates is an immensely elegant, delicate yet pure and demanding Sancerre with pressure and vitality, freshness and deep minerality. Pale straw yellow - Comparing the 2019 Sancerre Chambrates with its neighbour, the Sancerre Le Paradis, which comes from a similar but not the same terroir, the Chambrates seems a little more yellow-fruited than the more green to pale yellow-fruited Le Paradis, as if a few limes had been taken away and replaced with kumquats and the green apples with yellow and maybe even a few slices of apricot.

Wine information

The Chambrates site is very close to Le Paradis; it is an eroded plateau with a slight southern exposure. The soils are shallow, organic, clayey in topsoil and rich in Caillottes, the Oxford limestone from the Jurassic period. The wine is fermented and aged in a blend of Stockinger barrels and barriques for ten months.

Nose

Comparing the 2019 Sancerre Chambrates with his neighbor, the Sancerre Le Paradiswhich comes from a similar, but not the same terroir, the Chambrates a little more yellow-fruited than the more green to light yellow-fruited Le Paradis, just as if a few limes had been taken away and replaced by kumquats and the green apples by yellow ones and maybe even a few slices of apricot. But at the same time also remains the Chambrates on the energetic, pure looking and straight Page.

Palate

On the palate, this impression continues seamlessly. The Chambrates is an immensely elegant, delicate and yet pure and demanding Sancerre with pressure and vitality, freshness and deep minerality. Notes of cassis and gooseberry show up here and are interwoven with citrus notes, salt and crisp fresh stone fruit. The Chambrates vibrates with tension, but at the same time seems strong and deep, long and persistent, as sinewy as a long-distance runner. One can easily trust him with this endurance for the next decade.
