Quincy: Jerôme de la Chaise 2021
This delightful, racy Sauvignon Blanc from Quincy is made by Jerôme de la Chaise (bottled under his 'Domaine des Bruniers' label), and has an excellent nose with classic elderflower aromas. This wine makes a terrific accompaniment to asparagus, seafood or fresh goat's cheeses.
Jerôme de la Chaise is an experienced 'vigneron indépendent' and tasting here tends to be a rapid affair as Sauvignon Blanc is the only permitted grape in Quincy, France's second oldest 'appellation contrôlée', and Jerôme makes just the one wine.
Always a bien classique bottling, this Quincy wine has inviting nettley aromas and a palate of juicy, gooseberry fruit offset by racy mineral notes.

Jerôme de la Chaise
Jerôme de la Chaise is a respected and experienced vigneron independent in Quincy, making just one wine from the only permitted white grape variety - Sauvignon Blanc. The domaine has been making wine on the alluvial sand and gravel soils of the appellation since 1985 and now covers some 10 hectares. One of only a small number of producers who grow their own grapes and make their own wines, his Quincy bottling represents the appellation in a very pure light and demonstrates why small, independent producers deserve our support.
