2018 Saint Pourcain Blanc, L’instant T

The white wine made from 80% Chardonnay and 20% Tressallier is an AOC Saint Pourcain. A dry white white with lovely minerality and aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. A perfect companion for seafood or a fish. Very nice for an aperetif too. A lovely wine from a completely underrated region of France.

The producer

Domaine des Terres d'ocre

After travelling the southern hemisphere garnering experience in New Zealand and South Africa, Florent Barichard settled back in his homeland in 2013 on the sandy terrains of Châtel-de-Neuvre. With the support of his aunt and uncle, Valérie and Éric, he divided up his 9.5 hectares vineyard, dedicating a third of it to white grape varieties such as Trésailler and Chardonnay and the remainder to the red grapes, Gamay and Pinot Noir.  Each vintage is uniquely balanced, acidity ,sugar and alcohol agree. The wines are aged in concrete vats and oak barrels .
