Julie Noël is a rising star in the Loire Valley. She took over Domaine Patrick Noël from her father. Patrick is descended from more than three centuries of vignerons, all from the village of Chavignol. Historically, in the Noël family, the vines have always been transmitted from mothers to daughters. Patrick is an exception to this rule, but his daughter Julie, by choosing to take over the wine heritage in her turn, is part of a long matriarchal line.
Domaine Patrick Noël bottles only estate fruit, fermented exclusively with native, indigenous yeasts and they have also implemented the certification of their plots through a new ecological farming certification program in France known as Haute Valeur Environnementale (HVE).
The Sancerre Blanc is structured yet soulful. It has a good balance between crisp citrus flavors and touches of pineapple and apricot. Racy and bright with a flinty streak.
