Domaine Pre Semele Sancerre 2014 is a classic Sancerre with freshly picked gooseberries aromas streaked with dry minerality on the palate. Domaine du Pre Semele is located in Maimbray, a small hamlet between Sury and Verdigny to the north of the village of Sancerre in the beautiful Loire region of France. Brothers Julien & Clement now run the domaine they have inherited from their father. Geographically and climatically, Sancerre has a distinctly continental climate with long, hot summers and severe winters, therefore hail and frost are common problems. The region is famous for making fine, dry wines. The brothers manage 14 hectares of vines spread around 45 different parcels. The soil is a clay-chalk which is quite heavy giving the wines a riper fruit character. All work in the modern cellar is in stainless steel and temperature controlled to ensure the crisp fresh fruit of the wine.
