William Saintot Blanc de Blancs Premier Cru
Touch of gold in colour. Toasty nose with a nice line of oak coming through in a delicate and layered way. There is lemon peel, a dusting of salt and green apple flesh. It's central on the front end with a really complex mid palate that goes lateral. As it warms the palate rounds out and brings the complexity of the vinification on the mid to late to the fore.
Based in the village of Avenay-Val-d’Or in the very East of the Marne Valley, this domain is currently run by 5th generation vigneron, Morgann Saintot. Committed to working in a sustainable way, the Maison is HVE certified and currently on route to organic certification. Working with 10ha of mostly Pinot Noir, Morgann vinifies his plots separately to highlight the typical characteristics of each terroir.
