Foucher-Lebrun Le Mont Sancerre is a white wine gem of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley of France. Located 30 kilometers northeast of Sancerre in the village of Aligny-Cosne, Maison Foucher is a "Petit Négociant" with a mission to craft classic expressions of Loire Valley appellations at exceptional values. The estate was founded in 1921 by Paul Lebrun, a cooper by trade, who developed his company servicing a clientele made up of restaurants and cafés in the Loire Valley and Paris. During the 1950s, Paul's son-in-law Raymond Foucher took the reins and then in 1985 passed the baton to his son, Jacky Foucher. The grapes for both the Sancerre Blanc and Rouge are sourced from the villages of Sancerre, Chavignol (near Mont Damnés) and d'Amigny.
Foucher-Lebrun Le Mont Sancerre is a pale yellow in color with crisp acidity. Medium in body, it is a minerally, citrusy, racy style of Sancerre, with aromas of citrus, floral notes and stone. It offers clean flavors of lime, nectarine, orange zest, pear and mineral notes. The wine was aged on its lees in stainless steel for 10 months before bottling. It is long, clean and refreshing on the finish.
