The Loire’s oldest Appellation Contrôlée. Lestourgie gave up cereal farming 20 years ago to make Quincy; his wife Géraldine is an oenologue and helps Yves, as well as also advising numerous other growers in Quincy. They have 10 hectares of vines, with an average age of 24 years. Yves leaves the wine on its lees in tank right up to the moment of assemblage and bottling, to develop concentration and richness. This is now one of the best domaines in Quincy. TASTING: A wonderful aperitif and the perfect partner for shellfish, fish, goat's cheese and charcuterie.
White and delicate fish, such as Plaice, Brill and Sole are generally described as having mild, sweet and delicate flavours. They are usually simply served and can be enhanced with subtle flavourings like lemon and dill, requiring a lighter, fresher and more mineral style of wine with higher acidity; for example Albariño, Sancerre or Muscadet in order not to overpower. The simple flavours love being paired with a Sauvignon Blanc and so we recommend this beautiful Quincy from the Loire Valley.
