Domaine Serge Laloue Sancerre, 2018
Brilliantly crafted Sancerre from an exciting, yet very small domaine, in the village of Thauvenay. This delightful, fragrant wine, has a vibrancy and a delicacy all of its own. Delicious.
Prise for the 2015 vintage:
Highly Recommended: Decanter Sancerre Tasting 2015
"Light citric notes and a smoky, bright nose with a reserved mineral vein. This has a lean and grippy style. The palate is pure and nicely polished, showing white stone fruit and white peach freshness, with an energetic balance of fruit and acidity. Deliciously fine example. Drink 2017-2024. 94 points." (2015 vintage)
Silver Medal: ELLE à table 2016
"Beautiful pale yellow colour with green hues. Fresh nose, bursting with citrus, lime and green apple. Frank and chiselled mouth with a great aromatic purity. Nice personality with mineral saline nuances. Long finish that ends with a hint of grapefruit." (2015 vintage)
Domaine Serge Laloue
Domaine Serge Laloue is operated by the brother and sister team of Franck and Christine who continue to perpetuate the work originally undertaken by their father, Serge, in the 1960's. The estate consists of 21 hectares of vines, essentially located in the commune of Thauvenay, 5 kilometres from the town of Sancerre. 16 hectares are planted with Sauvignon Blanc which produce our white Sancerre. The remaining 5 hectares are planted with Pinot Noir grapes that go into the production of their rosé and red Sancerres.

Brimming with innovative producers aiming to produce wines as naturally as possible, there is much joy to be found in Loire Valley wines – we recommend you dive in head first to sample the delights on offer today!
