Biodynamic. La Demoiselle was established on a small, east-facing hillside in 1951, and is one of Sancerre’s easier vineyards to locate, just below the Panoramic Hotel on the edge of the village. The deep soils are a mix of flint and flinty clay, the town being situated over the fault that runs through the appellation. While the winemaking essentially mirrors that of La Moussière, the yields here are somewhat lower still.
You can expect a more restrained aromatic profile than La Moussière, with scents of chalky, flinty minerality in the lead supported by citrus backing. It packs a serious punch on the palate with silky yellow fruits shot through with vibrant acidity, finishing with a tantalizing nip of grapefruit bitterness.
