This Quincy wine from Jerôme de la Chaise has an excellent nose with classic elderflower aromas. The palate is full of crisp, zesty white currant fruit and minerally tastes, and leads to a long, elegant, dry finish.

Quincy wine - Buy Wine From the Quincy region of France
The appellation of Quincy has a rich and ancient history - the monks of Cîteaux were growing wine there as early as the 14th Century and its proximity to river traffic meant it established a healthy market in Paris. All of which might explain why Quincy is a Vin Noble and why (after Châteauneuf du Pape) in 1936 it became France's second official Appellation d'Origine Côntrolée.
Latterly, the reputation of Quincy wine has waned a little, perhaps because only white wine is produced but also because Quincy is very much a small grower's district and so lacks the marketing might of the big négociants from nearby Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.
In Quincy, Jérôme de la Chaise is a relative rarity being a vrai Vigneron Independent, making his own wine free from the influence of the increasingly powerful local wine-makers’ collective. No red or rosé wine is permitted within Quincy so Jérôme’s efforts are concentrated entirely on his exemplary Sauvignon Blanc.
