Wine of the Week - Chaumeau Maison d'Anais Sancerre Blanc

Today's featured wine is the Sancerre Blanc from Chaumeau Maison d'Anais. Just in time for spring, this is a classic Sancerre from Bué with bright grapefruit, grassy, and gooseberry notes. Stony and flinty, this wine celebrates the limestone soils of this area, giving a clear sense of the terroir.

Owner and producer Madame Chaumeau oversees Chaumeau Maison d’Anais from the center of Bué in the heart of Sancerre. A multigenerational Domaine, Chaumeau inherited the property from her family, which extends along the rolling hills of the Bué with vineyards scattered amongst different faces of these hills. The Domaine can attribute a large portion of its success to the Kimmeridian ridge, a geological feature of limestone and clay soils that contribute to the body and mineral-driven flavor profile of their wines and allow the Domaine to produce a clean, intense, and flavorful product. Thanks to its stringent standards of quality, Chaumeau Maison d’Anais is now recognized as one of the best producers in the region.
