Pascal Thomas is not only one of Sancerre’s most respected growers, his method of farming his tiny plots on the steep hillsides allow him to select his wines by plot and to ensure that his wine is a long-standing favourite of both locals and connoisseurs. His ‘tradition’ is grown exclusively on 40-year-old vines on a chalky soil, which gives the finished wine enormous elegance and balance. Entirely traditional methods of agriculture including hand harvesting, traditional filtration and no oak. Only 25,000 bottles produced each year. An absolute treat.

According to Head Sommelier David Vareille of the Arts Club, “This wine is, for me, the best value for money I have ever tasted. But even more importantly, it is the benchmark, the ground zero of the grape variety. It has an original style, an oily asparagus texture, mature dry hay on the nose and green plums on the finish. It’s highly satisfying and extremely delicious.” (Mr Porter, The Journal)

In the glass

Pale yellow with classic sauvignon green tinge, highly floral nose, and a multi-layered white flowers and fruit complexity. Ample, long, fresh finish.

Fabulous silky smooth Sancere

This Sancere delivers on every level. A special wine for special days, accompanying Christmas lunch for us. Bought as an individually mixed box of classy white wines. Wine at Home, as always, providing exceptional wines at good prices, with excellent customer service.

Thank you so much for leaving a review! We are huge fans of this Sancerre from Pascal Thomas - and have so many great memories of time spent with him in Chavignol. So hard to find a real master of the appellation like this - and well worth a visit if you are in the area! Glad too that you enjoyed the Classic collection box - we've tried to make it really worthy of its name and contains many of our personal favourites... thanks again and Happy New Year!

Stunning Sancerre

You can almost taste the terroir! This boutique white is so clean, precise and one of the best I have ever tasted; love the fact you support small growers and the craftmanship that goes into this bottle... fantastic value for quality... will be ordering again soon!

Great review - this is the feedback we get so often from this utterly fantastic Sancerre - which stands out from the crowd like no other. The vineyard has sadly suffered such terrible frost damage this year - so we are really making the most of the 2019...

A taste of summer

Just delicious served chilled - especially with a little goats cheese!

Pascal Thomas's tiny plots are on the steep slopes around village of Chavignol, home to those tiny round goats cheeses that are so synonymous with the region! They say what grows together, goes together - they really are a perfect blend and foil! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review - we really appreciate it!
