Dominique Roger Domaine du Carrou Sancerre La Jouline 2020


This comes from a vineyard selection off Chene Marchand which has been given plenty of oak and, while not ready to drink quite yet, the pieces are all in place for something quite special. It is powerful and weighty as it delivers aromas of guava, nettles, river pebbles and savoury leesy complexity all wrapped up in a thick blanket of oak. Richly flavoured, there is tremendous density of flavour but also a fresh acidity that provides backbone and tension before a long, strong finish. Put this away for at least five years to enjoy at peak.
