100% Sauvignon Blanc. Domaine Thomas is run by the ninth generation of the family. Jean and his wife Ginette own 13 hectares at Verdigny, mostly planted to Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas and flavours of bright citrus fruit, with hints of gooseberry and freshly cut grass. It’s light-bodied, with a mineral note on the finish. This is Sancerre at its flinty, minerally and racy best. Very clean, fresh and flavoursome wine at a moderate 12.5% alcohol. This is as Sancerre should be – absolutely fresh and unadulterated by oak.

"Pierrier" translates as “scree”, a collection of broken rock fragments that have usually accumulated over time from rockfalls. The soil is limestone and of course the grapes are 100% Sauvignon Blanc. There’s a lot said about minerality in wines these days, even if the mechanism for grapes developing a mineral taste is not well understood, but this wine is very mineral and fresh indeed. There is fruit as well, with grapefruit and green apple; although these are green fruit and there are no exuberant tropical notes, this is not an under-ripe wine in any respect. The finish is longer than The Blue Room by The Orb – This is a seriously good wine. Frankly Wines
