... Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti!

Nozay Header

Terrific Sancerre from the domaine of Philippe De Benoist - brother-in-law of Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti! 

Domaine du Nozay was founded by Philippe de Benoist in 1971. Philippe is married to Marie-Helene who happens to be the sister of Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanee-Conti fame. Given the connection, it will come as no surprise that Domaine du Nozay's winemaking philosophy is similarly meticulous, espousing organic methods.

The Domaine's vineyards, located in a beautiful 17th century property, boast a high proportion of prized terres blanches, the chalky-clay soils rich in marine fossils which are linked to the distinctive flavours and textures of many great Sancerres. When he is not chasing wild boar (a favourite pastime), Philippe devotes his prodigious energy to managing Domaine du Nozay's fifteen hectares of vineyards, while son Cyril handles the winemaking. Cyril studied at the "Lycee Viticole" in Beaune, gained experience at Bouzeron with his uncle Aubert and joined the family estate in 1991. 


2011 Sancerre
Normal Price $29.99
Pre Arrival Price $25.50

Nozay Sancerre Label This Sancerre boasts a pale gold color with a nice depth. The nose, intense and complex, appears very attractive at the outset, combining the flavors of sauvignon (citrus, exotic fruits) to more subtle notes of white flowers and complex (hawthorn, honeysuckle), boxwood and fruit orchard. 

Good attack, frank and tense, mouthfilling, balanced, well-rounded and elegant. It concludes with a mineral touch bringing freshness and length. 


Well priced, especially at our Pre Arrival Offer. The wine will be in our next container which is anticipated to arrive late September 2012.
