This wine is full of aromas such as lime, verbena but also delicate mineral nuances (flint). In mouth, fresh touch of grapefruits, almonds, hawthorn and light touch of coconuts. Its minerality gives it a great length. Concentrated, full and fine, equally excellent when young or up to 6 -8 years aging.

92 Points - The Wine Advocate

"The 2014 Sancerre d'Antan is another icon wine of the domaine. From a flinty, pretty stony and almost organically farmed vineyard planted in 1936, fermented in oak and aged on the fine lees, this cuvée was bottled without fining and filtration. It is a very clear, deep and aromatic Sancerre with intense fruit and fascinatingly flinty/mineral aromas on the nose. It has a full-bodied, round and elegant palate with a clear, slightly oaky fruit and dry, very long and refreshing finish with a lovely phenolic grip and stimulatingly bitter citrus (grapefruit) flavours. The aftertaste is enormously pure and salty and reveals a dramatic youth and aging potential." - Stephan Reinhardt

Sancerre “D’Antan” is an excellent companion to fish, shellfish and white meat. Grilled lobster, turbot in a meat sauce and spit-roasted sweetbreads with a truffle sauce: a few delicacies matching perfectly this fine wine. Or tempt your guests with a vacherin cheese from Mont d’Or with dried pears!
