Domaine Du Pre Semele Sancerre "Camille" Rouge, Pinot Noir, Loire France, 2014
Overview of the Wine
Domaine du Pré Semelé lies in a tiny valley a few miles northwest of the hilltop town of Sancerre. The estate is managed by the third generation of the family Raimbault, brothers Julien and Clément, vigneron and winemaker, respectively. They are guided by their father Rémy, who has worked their vineyards for decades with his brother Claude. This is another wonderful example of the younger generation taking over the reigns of a family estate and elevating it to a new higher level.
Grape / Blend
The color is ruby color, the nose is concentrated with grout notes of black fruit (cassis, blackberries …) finely married with toasted notes from the barrel aging.
The palate is round and rich with silky tannins that promise a great wine.
To open from 3 years in the bottle up to 10 years or more with game or meat sauce.
