light to medium straw yellow


The 2019 Sancerre Le Paradis presents itself as exceedingly fresh, straighterThe Sauvignon Blanc is bright and already powerful on the nose. Beside many citric notes from lime over lemon to grapefruit a breath of flint and smoke shows up, but only as a coating, not as a formative element. In addition, there are chalky-chalky notes, a little green apple and herbs.


What one can only guess at in the fragrance becomes obvious on the palate. It is the pure power and intensity of this very mineral, purist, punchy and cool. Sancerre. The Le Paradis appears pure, bright and resonant on the palate. At the same time, the energy is bubbling and the Sauvignon Blanc seems as clear as a mountain stream. Besides the citric fruit, there are iodine-salty notes, which of course provides additional drinking flow. Only on the palate a little bit of cassis and elderberry becomes recognizable, but this remains very fine as well as moderate and is offset with a very slight sweetness. The Le Paradis pushes forward unflinchingly and on and on into the long, straight Finals.
