Winery Tasting Notes
Very pale straw
The first impression is of intense flinty, minerally notes verging on gunpowder. Being typically aromatic, the wine opens up with air, taking on more fruity nuances, in particular of ripe pear.
The structure is defined by wonderful balance. The style is vigorous and frank, with a surprisingly rich middle palate, finishing with lively vivacity. Domaine Christian Salmon Sancerre leaves one with an overall sensation of elegance and harmony.
Do not over chill, serving at 10 degrees Celsius, with delicately flavoured shellfish and fish dishes such as Brochet (Pike) au Beurre Blanc, or with dry goats cheese, such as that typical of the region from the wine-making village of Chavignol “Crottin de Chavignol”.
