Karine Lauverjat Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Size: Regular

The Lauverjat family has been growing grapes in Sancerre for generations in the tiny village of Sury-en-Vaux. Husband-and-wife team Christian and Karine have 12-hectares of vines in Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. They have made improvements over the years, including a transition to sustainable viticulture. They favor working the soil and use a seaweed to combat disease, reducing chemical intervention. They grow grass in the rows to prevent erosion. In the cellar the whites are made in thermo-regulated tanks and the reds are made in large wooden conical tanks. Several years ago, they invested in a new clay filtration system that allows them to very gently filter the wines without stripping them of their character. The wines from Lauverjat undoubtedly represent some of the best values to be had from the appellation.

Menetou-Salon's stoney soil gives a lot of minerality to the wine. Vines average 26-30 years-old. Fermented and aged in stainless steel. 2015 was the first vintage produced. Average production is 5,000 bottles per year.
