Discover Reserve Durand Sancerre 750ml:
Wonderful fragrance with white flowers and fruity aromas. On the palate it reveals freshness that is pure and pure. Citrus, apple and currant notes with passion fruit tones are found in this wine alive and brilliant. Incredible value.
An excellent aperitif that also blends perfectly with fish, seafood and some white dishes. A classic combination with any kind of goat cheese.
For generations, Sancerra’s hillside vineyards have been home to some of the world’s largest Sauvignon Blanc. Durand continues this tradition by creating classic Sancerre vineyards from this iconic region. This small wine region in central France overlooks the valley of the Loire River, which helps to soften this cool climate. The soils are the pride of Sancerre’s winegrowers. They are clearly divided into three main types: chalk, limestone gravel and sylx (s?lex). Durand is made of vine blocks on a mixture of soils to add complexity and depth to the final wine. The wines are produced in a modern cellar with modern fermentation tanks with controlled temperature and under careful control to ensure the most expressive and constantly complex wines.
The Alto Loire Valley is known for its two iconic wine sub-regions, Pouilly Fume and Sancerre. Almost all the wines grown in these areas belong to the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety.
Crisp, respectively sour and aromatic, these wines are a surprising experience, both on the nose and on the palate. In addition, they tend to be slightly more expensive than Sauvignon Blanc from other regions – but not necessarily without good reason.
Pouilly Fume east of the Loire and Sancerre west, the terroirs of each region give slightly different characteristics to their wines. Mostly unprotected, these wines have an amazing structure with aromatic notes of grapefruit and gooseberry with a light touch of honey.
Pouilly Fume wines tend to be slightly more intense than their Sancerre counterparts.
