Christian Dauny Sancerre Blanc “Les Caillottes”.
Christian Dauny Sancerre Blanc is absolutely classic Sancerre. There is an abundance of all the flavours that you would expect, grassy and pure. Given that organic Sauvignon often lacks the herbaceous, gooseberry character we are used to, this wine is a delightful rarity. It is classic, grassy Sancerre but with tremendous clarity and purity. It is like the ping of a really good crystal glass: the resonance is spot on.
The very shy Christian Dauny, who is 12th generation Dauny and his even more shy son run this immaculate estate. The Domaine is situated in the rolling hills to the west of the town of Sancerre. The family turned to organic farming in the 1960s, obviously out of belief rather than some new fashion to follow. They have 12.5 hectares under cultivation to produce the Christian Dauny Sancerre Blanc organic wine.
Grower: Christian Dauny.

As with all wines on this website, this wine has been made without animal products. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
