Quincy 2021, Domaine de Chevilly
Aromas of citrus, pepper and floral notes, the palate is fresh, fruity with hints of mineral and balanced acidity. Perfect alternative to Sancerre of Pouilly-Fumé.
Yves Lestourgie gave up cereal farming 20 years ago to make Quincy. His wife Géraldine is an oenologue and helps Yves, as well as advising numerous other growers in Quincy. They have 11.5 hectares of vines, with an average age of 24 years.
This is now one of the best domaines in Quincy. Yves is currently president of the Quincy growers’ association.
Both vinification and ageing are carried out in stainless steel. A pneumatic press is used, the juice then undergoes cold settling for 24 hours. The wines are then racked and yeast is added to start the fermentation which lasts 10 days at between 16 °C to 18 °C. The wine is aged on its fine lees for 3 months.
