“We exploit 2.01 hectares (fives acres) out of a magic vineyard that covers 9 hectares (22 acres) over the village of Saint-Satur. Flint terroir represents 15% of Sancerre appellation and Le Roc might be its ultimate reference. It is also the very last land acquisition of the domaine in 2011.......... The wine is vinified in a 7hl (184 gallon) vertical ovoid tank, in demi-muids and in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. Maturation on fine lees for 12 months.” Organic viticulture and Ambient yeast.

2009 Base. Disgorged January 2018. Continuing on the rich and autolytic spectrum, this was stone fruit, brioche and lightly toasted marshmallow. That being said, it was noticeably drier than the Philipponat Royale Reserve that preceded it and seemed to have a slightly greater depth of character. — 14 days ago
A very enjoyable, and very complex, 21 year old red blend from Pessac Léognan, Bordeaux.
Showing red and black fruits with earth, chocolates, tobacco, dark peppercorn, dark coffee, forest floor, green vegetables, graphites, vinaigrette and spices.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity.
Peaking now, and will be good in the next few years. What a treat. This is so delicious.

What a treat this was! Not seen nearly enough in the wild. Again part of the SB luncheon and contributed by @Joe Lucca himself, thank you! A very solid blend that is richly textured creating a full mouth feel. Hint of the tropics and toasted marshmallows make this a must have. Excellent wine. — 7 days ago
