We welcome to Chilled & Tannin a delightful drop from the stunning Domaine Philippe Raimbault. We are keen Sancerrois's who were famed for making a concerted effort to popularise the wines. Particularly in Paris' ubiquitous bistros, marching up to the counter and demanding, "A glass of Sancerre, please!"
A fantastic single vineyard Sancerre, they acquired this superb parcel by current owners grandfather in 1946. Forming a natural amphitheatre on a very steep slope, protected from the wind, it has a very good exposition to the sun, Les Godons vineyard is blessed with a unique microclimate. Which results in this stunning expression of the famed Sancerre.
What's even better about this estate is it has the advantage of being certified HVE (High Environmental Value), also since 2015 they are proud to be part of Terra-Vitis, a network of winemakers who share the same values of winemaking, respecting the vines, and surrounding environment. These values match ours at Chilled & Tannin and is why we had to add this stunning wine to our list.
