Domaine St Romble is a tiny but highly respected estate in Sancerre. 

It’s situated on the famous Terres Blanches soils - which is white stone with clay and marl. It gives a wide spectrum of flavour to the Sauvignon grapes - everything from tropical, herbaceous to cassis flavours.

Vieilles Vignes means old vines en francais. So these vines are 40-60 years old - they are less productive than younger, vigorous vines, but the fruit they produce tends to be more concentrated and complex in flavour. And you’ll taste extra concentration in this wine - it’s delicious.

Damien makes this wine in a very low intervention way, to maximise the expression of this special land.

The Loire is the true home of Sauvignon Blanc - nowhere else does it taste as pure, characterful and authentic.

I’ve got a pretty good contact here from my Naked years - Joost de Villebois - who owns one of the biggest family producers in the Sancerre area, Fournier Pere et Fils.
