Quincy was the first French white wine appellation to be given AOC status in 1936, but latterly it is nearby Sancerre that has grabbed the limelight. Jean Tatin, the ‘pioneer’ of the region, has reinvented Quincy as a region of high quality, vineyard-driven Sauvignon Blanc. The Sauvignon Blanc vines are planted on the sandy soil over the freshwater Kimmeridgian limestone that is characteristic of the region. This, in turn, gives the flinty, mineral flavours.
Bright pale yellow in colour with lively citrus and herbs on the nose and a touch of exotic stone fruit. The palate is refreshing, with fine acidity supporting excellent lemon intensity. The finish is long and lingering with gentle mineral notes alongside the fruit flavours.
Shellfish, Lobster, White fish. Roasted potatoes and Thyme. Goat cheese.
