Producer Guide: Domaine Henry Natter (Loire Valley, France)

Founded in 1974 by Cécile and Henry Natter have built up an admirable reputation for producing exceptional Sancerre AOC from the village of Montigny. Today their children Mathilde and Vincent help out in the cellar.

Planted on over 23 hectares of clay and limestone soils that cover the slopes that surround Montigny, the Natters have created an estate that produces top quality Sauvignon Blanc.

Sancerre AOC 2015 by Domaine Henry Natter Beautifully ripe on the nose with all of the hallmark characteristics of great Sancerre. 100% Sauvignon Blanc, it exudes mineral freshness on the nose, almost the definition in fact of wet slate. It spends six months in large cask, but this is scarcely noticeable. It's a truly excellent wine with ripe citrus fruit on the palate and a long, long finish of perfect balance and harmony. This is one of the truly great Sancerre wines.
