Alcohol/vol 14%
This wine is full of aromas such as lime, verbena but also delicate mineral nuances (flint). In mouth, fresh touch of grapefruits, almonds, hawthorn and light touch of coconuts. Its minerality gives it a great length. Concentrated, full and fine, equally excellent when young or up to 6 - 8 years ageing. Sancerre "D'Antan" is an excellent companion to fish, shelfish and white meat. Grilled lobster, turbot in a meat sauce and spit-roasted sweetbreads with a truffle sauce: a few delicacies matching perfectly this fine wine. Or tempt your guests with a vacherin cheese from Mont d'Or with dried pears!

In Sancerre, flint soils are in the minority and typically give wines that are not as tender as those on chalk-based vineyards. This provides an upright structure, meaning they are usually last in a lineup at a winery. And yet, while the 2019 Sancerre Cuvee d'Antan is very direct, with its firm line on the finish, it's still full-bodied, silky-smooth and amazingly rich. It's fermented entirely in older oak barrels and spends a year on lees, which certainly has something to do with its delectable texture. There's the merest hint of smokiness on the finish too.

The wine's style and richness fills the glass. It has maturity and ripeness with fine, textured fruit and acidity that intertwines beautifully. Its spice, density and concentration give it a still youthful character. Drink from 2023.

A palate-coating, beautifully chiseled wine, with lovely purity to the flavors of nectarine, lemon and lime zest. Nearly viscous in texture and broad on the palate, this ripples with racy acidity and wet stone accents. A powerful wine, with nice cut through the finish. Drink now through 2030.
